i'm trying to import several tables from external Access database into SAS. the access files names are like 'A2014' , 'A2015', and the tables in each file have names 'A2014-01' , 'A2014-02' ...
my code is
%macro loadin(year=, month=) ;
libname temp PCFILES path="C:\trial\A&year..accdb";
select a , b, c
from temp."A&year.-&month"n ;
%loadin (year=2014, month=01) ;
so i succeeded in assigning the libname, linking the external access file with SAS. but in the proc sql step, error msg showed up , saying A2014-01 is not a valid SAS name. how do I edit my code to get around problem ??
