I am running code which first imports data using a data step. 


the problem that Im finding that if that datafile is missing, the whole program keeps freezing. 


WHat I would like to do is to skip certian steps if the datafile is missing? 


Can anyone help me out?


For reference, I am running on SAS EG 7.1
