Stored process with selective output

I would like to create a stored process from an Enterprise Guide project.
This stored process will be used in SAS Portal.

How can I define a selective output (summary table) based on a value from the start page in the portal.
Upon the value of this macrovariable a specific summary table should be used.

In plain SAS-code I can use macro processing to run a specific proc tabulate:

%macro presentation;

%if "&var." eq "A" %then %do;
proc tabulate ......
run;
%end;

%else %if "&var." eq "B" %then %do;
proc tabulate ......
run;
%end;

%mend;
%presentation;

Is this posible within Enterprise Guide towards a stored process ??

Re: Stored process with selective output

In EG 4.1 you can use Project Parameters to create a parameter as a placeholder for a variable name in a task. (Tools->Parameter Manager, then define a new parameter of type Variable).

Most SAS tasks will then accept that parameter as a value you can assign in the task's roles page.

However, if you are looking to check for a condition and execute one set of PROC code versus another depending on the value of the condition, that's not something that EG will facilitate via point and click. But you certainly can write your SAS program in EG and then convert it to a stored process. You can even use project parameters to parameterize your program in EG, so that you are prompted for the condition values as you run it. The project parameters are then translated into stored process parameters automatically.
