CARRY OUT OUTPUT STEPS CONDITIONALLY

What adjustment to the following code could lead to carry out the same only under some specific condition?

ODS CSV FILE = "F:\Temp\Test.csv";

PROC PRINT data=WORK.FINALDATA;

run; quit;

ods _all_ close;

In other words, how to have the Test.csv generated only if desired, i.e. judged on the basis of the value of a variable. For example if a macro variable CSVFORM possess the value of 1 or above only then the Test.csv would be generated otherwise only the remaining code would be carried out but Test.csv would not be made.

Thanx in advance.

Re: CARRY OUT OUTPUT STEPS CONDITIONALLY

%macro file;

ODS CSV FILE = "F:\Temp\Test.csv";

PROC PRINT data=WORK.FINALDATA;

run; quit;

ods _all_ close;

%mend;

%macro print;

PROC PRINT data=WORK.FINALDATA;

run; quit;

%mend;

data _null_;

    set WORK.FINALDATA;

    if &CSVFORM>=1 then call execute('%file');

    else call execute('%print');

run;
