set works._RefDate_ end=eof;
if eof then call execute('data &syslast; set &syslast;');
if eof then call execute('label AEENDY = "relative day of ' || strip(vlabel(AEENDT)) || '";');
if eof then call execute('run;');
NOTE: CALL EXECUTE generated line.
1 + data WORKS._REFDATE_ ; set WORKS._REFDATE_ ;
2 + label AEENDY = "relative day of End Date of Adverse Event";
3 + run;
But the issue is the variable AEENDY is not assigned the label in SAS Data set,but its showing log.can some help me.

Get the value of the label into another variable and use call label instead of label:
NewLabel = catx(' ','relative day of',vlabel(aeendt));
call label (aeendy,NewLabel);
I don't think you even need to go the call execute or worry about EOF part.

Unfortunately call label doesnt work that way afaik. Its a feature that sorely needs to be added.
Your original code should have worked.
Please post a proc contents before and after the run. When you rename datasets with the same name it can be difficult to debug. Or try using a proc datasets to apply the label instead of a data step.
