I have a proc sql to create a macro variable list. However, some names I don't want them in that macro list. For example, the '&varlist' includes 'apple1', 'pear2', 'grape3' and 'cherry4'. However, 'apple1' and 'pear2' should not be in the list. Please advice how to remove them. Also, is there a way create a masterlist for removing list?
Just add them to your WHERE clause. And yes, you can create a look up data set containing those values (one per row) and then use the NOT IN (SELECT name FROM Lookupdataset) construct in the WHERE clause as well.
