Connect to SQLSVR( DATAsrc="&varName") ... won't connect

When I do this I get the error: "Data source name not found and no default driver specified" ... it's as if it is not resolving the variable &varName to the valid DSN that it contains.  Is there a way to connect in this fashion?

Without the full code and logs there's no way of telling. Please run your program with OPTIONS MPRINT SYMBOLGEN; and provide us the details. Also, make sure it's formatted properly by pasting into a code segment (click on the {i} or running man icon).

 

And to test your connection I would suggest to insert the proper values verbatim instead of via a macro var reference. If that works you can take the next step and use macro's.
