parameter 1801,1802,1803,1804,1805,1806

Hello

I want to ask a question please.

Let's say that a user define 56 parameters

%let x1=1801;
%let x2=1802;
%let x3=1803;
%let x4=1804;
%let x5=1805;
%let x6=1806;

 

The task is to create another parameter that is created automatically and  will receive the value: 
1801,1802,1803,1804,1805,1806

 

How can I do it please?

56 macro variables, plus one big one to hold them all.  Doesn't sound like a great process to me.  Why not store the data in a dataset?
