I'm submitting code remotely via
And in one loop I'm running an if-else with a sysfunc to check if a local dataset exists then skip else continue with the loop.
%if %sysfunc(exist(local.qt&year.&month_1.&day_1._&modif.)) %then %GOTO reloop;
I spent debugging this for a while and the sysfunc executes perfectly if run locally but doesn't see that lib when run remotely -- code just runs as if files didn't exist. Prox download at the end of the loop however can download the remote dataset to the same local lib without a problem. All other code run remotely runs fine.
This should be something really obvious that I'm missing so any help would be appreciated!

With SAS/CONNECT, the client has access to the server, but not vice versa. You need to evaluate the condition locally and transfer the result to the server (%syslput)

Agree with what @KurtBremser wrote.
One thought: In case your "local" SAS got also SAS/Connect licensed then another option would be to use remote library services within your rsubmit block

Only now could log back in -- apologies for a delayed answer. I will attempt the %syslinput approach, but it will take a while to write as I haven't used SAS macros in a while.
