re: Error Message Variable not on File

Hi, I am getting an error message that the variable is not on File work.Tableranges. I modified a sas program I use thats uses the actual fiscal year dates which works just fine. I have included the code and output as well as the log with the error meesage. The modified code seems to work up to the point where the TableRanges is created. Not too sure whats happening after that point. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

%INCLUDE 'U:\SAS Templates\rac.sas';

LIBNAME myproj 'C:\Dps';

DATA _NULL_;
  fromdate = strip(put(intnx('year.4',today(),-3,'B'),yymmddn8.));
  todate = strip(put(intnx('year.4',today(),-1,'E'),yymmddn8.));
CALL Symput ('fromdate', fromdate);
CALL Symput ('todate', todate);
RUN;

DATA Dates;
  startday = 20040401;
  date  = input(put(startday,8.),yymmdd8.);
FORMAT date date9.;
  endDay = intnx("YEAR.4", today(), -2);
   DO WHILE(date <= endDay);
   OUTPUT;
    date = intnx("YEAR", date, 1, "SAME");
    END;
DROP endDay;

Re: re: Error Message Variable not on File

From your SAS code piece, file WORK.TABLERANGES is sourced from a DATA step that inputs with a SET dates_info ab;  specified.  Neither of those two files has a SAS variable with the name you are getting for the SAS ERROR.
