I'm writing code in EG 9.4 and I'm trying to use a function to filter a table using yesterday's date and am having a difficult time. I have tried using any combination of %sysfunc %eval Today() in a macro variable but for some reason its not working. I think it may be because I'm filtering in the ODBC connection, but the table I'm querying from is very large and it would save a ton of query time if I filtered there.
Some macros that I've tried using (of course all not run on the same run):
%let TEST= %sysfunc(%eval(Today()-1),DATE9.);
%let TEST= %eval(TODAY()-1);
%let TEST= %put %sysfunc(putn(%eval(%sysfunc(today())-1),date9.));
%let TEST= %put %sysfunc(intnx(day,%sysfunc(today()),-1),date9.);
%let TEST= %put %eval(%sysfunc(today())-1);
%let TEST = %eval(%sysfunc(today(),)-1);
CONDENSED VERSION OF MY CODE:
Connect to odbc (authdomain=db2_auth DATAsrc=db2dsne);
CREATE TABLE WORK.TABLE AS
FROM CONNECTION to odbc(
PDT_SERV_NME AS NAME,
WHERE RPT_PRD_BG_DT = &TEST.
Any help is appreciated!

See my answer in your other thread concerning yesterday's date.
