I have a SAS program that uses the micro and at the end is generating the following tables that I want to export it to SQL:

NCxC1993

NCxC1994

NCxC1995

NCxC1996

NCxC1997

I can use the following commands to create a table in SQL but I would like to use a loop:

/*proc sql;

    create table sqldb.cxcuse_dense_1993 as

     select * from NCxC1993; 

    create table sqldb.cxcuse_dense_1994 as

     select * from NCxC1994; 

    create table sqldb.cxcuse_dense_1995 as

     select * from NCxC1995; 

    create table sqldb.cxcuse_dense_1996 as

     select * from NCxC1996; 

    create table sqldb.cxcuse_dense_1997 as

     select * from NCxC1997; 

quit;

run;*/

I am using the following loop but for some reason without any error does not create the tables in SQL (but the above command does)

%macro sqlloop(start=,end=);

     %do year = &start %to &end;

     create table sqldb.cxcuse_dense_&year as

     select * from NCxC&year; 

      %end

%mend;

proc sql;

%sqlloop(start=1994,end=1995)

quit;

run;

/*-----------------------------------------------------------------------*/

quit;

run;

is there any thoughts on why the sqlloop does not work.

Thank you

I think you probably intended to post this in the macro/sql group: https://communities.sas.com/community/support-communities/sas_macro_facility_data_step_and_sas_langu...
