I have two tables that have identical columns.  One table is for the current month only (TBL_CURRENT) while the second table is the archive of all previous month data (TBL_STATIC).  I have a very standard query that polls the current data and summarizes it.  I want to copy the query and subsequent reports using the static table as the source.  In other programs I've used, it's been easy to simply change the reference from one to the other.  Is there a way to do this in SAS EG?  

 

Thanks for any help you can provide!

From what you have described you only need to change your table reference in the Proc SQL or datastep.  Maybe you will have to change your libname path if the archived data is not in the same location.
