To check Dataset exist created or not based on time elapsed

Hi,

 

How we nedd to check whether dataset created or not based on creation of dataset time looping

 

ex: One program is creating the dataset and this program is on que

     I  want second program to check  the first program created dataset or not based on time

    Like first check dataset exist or not if not check after 10 sec , still not created check after 10 sec , once dataset creasted and this program will stop.

This is a task for a scheduling system, not SAS.

 

In SAS, use the exist() function to check for a dataset, and the sleep() function to have a program lie waiting for a given time.
