How to run other SAS codes based on one static table

May I know how to run other SAS codes based on a table, the table will tell when to run the SAS codes (e.g. how freq i.e daily, weekly or monthly) and also there is a expiry date to tell when to stop the SAS codes

It looks like you are heading down the path of building your own SAS job scheduler. I highly recommend you don't do this. Why? Because there are already many scheduling tools available to you so why build another one. Every operating system has a scheduling tool, like Windows task scheduler. SAS provides scheduling capability using SAS Management Console and the Schedule Manager:

This is a good solution if you are using SAS on a remote server. If you are using SAS on a PC then scheduling using SAS Enterprise Guide is an option. This link shows several options available to you:
