Hi all:

 

I have a macro code below.  I found log view showed one error while I ran the codes.  Please let me know how to fix it.  Thanks.

 

options mprint symbolgen mlogic;
%let Year=2014;
%let YY=14;
%let Table1=B02;
%let Table2=B19;
.
.
.
.
%let Table12=S408;
%let importfolder=pathway\All_US_&year.;

%macro import;

 %do i  = 1 %to 12;

 PROC IMPORT OUT=ACS_&YY._5YR_&&TABLE&i 
            DATAFILE= "&importfolder.\ACS_&YY._5YR_&&TABLE&i._with_ann.csv" 
            DBMS=CSV REPLACE;
     		GETNAMES=YES;
     		DATAROW=2; 
		GUESSINGROWS=MAX;
RUN;
 
%end; 

%mend;

%import;

 

The error message is shown below.

This is the fix

 

DATAFILE= "&importfolder.\ACS_&YY._5YR_&&TABLE&i.._with_ann.csv" 

You need two dots after &&TABLE&I in order to indicate the end of the macro variable name and the beginning of extra non-macro text.
