I tried this 

 

 

%macro getserver;

  %LET x=index(&_srvname, "uview");

 %IF x > 0 %THEN %LET server=https://&_srvname&_url; %ELSE %LET server=http://&_srvname:&_srvport&_url;

%mend;

 

 

x seems to evaluate to "index(sas2.domain.com,"uview");" how would I get it to evaluate to a numeric value

Since you are using the macro language you also have to use macro functions like %INDEX

 

Please note, that in the macro language you do not need the quotes around text. So your example would look like:

%LET x = %index(&_srvname, uview);

Building upon what Bruno has mentioned ...

 

Once you follow his advice, you would need to change the way you refer to the macro variable X by adding an ampersand:

 

%if &X > 0 %then ...

 

Alternatively, just get rid of X entirely:

 

%if %index(&_srvname, uview) > 0 %then ...
