etls_jobName in SAS DI transformation

Hi All,

 

I'm trying to get the jobname from a SAS DI Studio job as a variable in my DI transformation, so I can write this information to a seperate table. I've created two new columns in an Extract with the JobID and JobName. For the JobID I use the macro &SYSJOBID which resolves nicely. For the JobName I am using &etls_jobName. Unfortunatly this is not working. The error I get is:

"Unable to execute query: SQL passthru expression contained these errors: ERROR: The following columns were not found in the contributing tables: <The actual Jobname>.

 

Does anyone know what I am doing wrong, It seems that the macro is resolving but I am not getting the jobname as a variable in my extract.

Smells like missing quotation marks around the macro reference ("&etls_jobname") but no way to know for sure.

Can you provide us with the code of the transformation and the actual log? That would greatly help in what seems a simple issue.

 

Regards,
