I have a data set with a field called Key which has values ranging from 1 to 25 and these represent different conditions;

Condition one is: if Fieldx = 1 then let comment = "exclud"e

Condition two is: if Fieldx = 2 and Fieldy ne 4 then comment =" always include"

and so on.

So the conditions vary in terms of the number of fields that affect the condition

I want to build a macro like;

%macro test(condition);

data test;

set test;

if &condition;

run;

%mend;

%test(fieldx=2);

%test(fieldx=2 and fieldy ne 4);

Something like this but which works.

Basically I can do this very simply if there is only one field affecting the condition but if it varies is there a way of building this into the macro

Hi,

Have you tried to use the function %STR()? All macro should work if you call it like

%test(%STR(fieldx=2));

%test(%STR(fieldx=2 and fieldy ne 4));
