Re: data set does not exist?

Doesn't the log say "file ... does not exist"? You created a SAS dataset. The error message however seems to refer to an input file. Generally, it's always helpful if you post some of the relevant SAS code as well.

Re: data set does not exist?

I skeptic your sas temp library is TEMP.
Are you try to use work.GBP_USD_Third_Quarter_2000 for %MakeBidAskAvg
