Systask submits only one job in random

Hi ,

We use the below code to submit jobs ,and we pass the macro variables across through a loop for each task.
Kindly let me know the reason for code being submitted only once (one systask) in random manner.

 

systask command "START ""Batch"" /wait /min
""%sysget(sasroot)\sas.exe"" -batch -nosplash
-sysin ""&run_file."" -log ""&log_file."" -print ""&lst_file."" "
taskname=tsk_2;

 

Note: Loop passes the variable correctly.

 

Thanks,
Kayal.

Re: Systask submits only one job in random

Since you have hard code the TASKNAME and not used the WAIT option on the SYSTASK command then you could end up with two tasks running under the same name.  I suspect that will cause confusion for your program.
