Is that possible to use proc template in macro?
I use a proc templat in SAS to combine 6 figures in to one page, that's good. But I have lots of variables, which means I have to run this proc template many times, but I don't want to change every variable name after I run out proc template once. Someone can give me an example to run proc template but use macro? I google, but didn't find a good example.

I would think that the point of using PROC TEMPLATE would be to eliminate the need for MACRO coding.
What type of template are you creating?
What is it that is varying?

It's not clear on whether you need to use the NMVAR, MVAR or DYNAMIC statements within GTL, or if you need to use GTL with a SAS MACRO. Can you please show your code, and/or let us know how you are outputting each of these variables?

It sounds like you're using PROC TEMPLATE incorrectly, but you haven't provided us enough information to tell you where or how to fix it. Really all you've stated is that somethings not working...
PROC TEMPLATE supports dynamic variables and should be a 'template' that can be reused so I suspect you're using it incorrectly or not using all the features available.
