However I get the error that the apparent invocation of macro fy is not resolved that leads to errors.
My assumption is that I should not have to run the fy program
beforehand or is this wrong? My understanding is that this program would compile the macro only when called in this program but perhaps I am wrong?
My ultimate question, is this possible that I can invoke a macro in a program without having to run the separate program.
If this is not your first attempt then you may need to add MRECALL to your OPTIONS statement. If we try and invoke an Autocall macro and for some reason it failed, we do not look back there again, in the same SAS session, unless MRECALL is turned on.
Thanks folks for your help I will try the various solutions and post back.
For some odd reason I don't get the notifications anymore that people responded to the queries. Not sure if others are having the same problem.
