Hello,

 

I have a syntax error for below's code. 

 

ERROR:  No logical assign for filename FIC 

 

Can anyone please help?

 

%macro param_date();
             data _null_;
                 infile fic;
                input exec $12.;
                call symput("exec",compress(exec));
            run;
         
             data _null_;
                 %if ^%symexist(exec) %then %do;
                     data _null_;
                         set param.LANCEMENT_IMAGES_W6(where=(DT_DEB_PASSAGE<=date()<=DT_FIN_PASSAGE));
                         call symput('lib', cat(ANNEE_IMAGE, SEMAINE_IMAGE));
                         call symput('mois', LOWCASE(cat(ANNEE_IMAGE, SEMAINE_IMAGE))); 
                         call symputx("date_exec","'"||put(date(),date9.)||"'d","G");
                         call symputx("DATE_EXTRACTION","'"||put(intnx('week.2',date(),0,'e'),date9.)||"'d","G");
 
                     run;
                 %end;
                 %else %if &exec. ne %then %do;
                     data _null;
                         set param.LANCEMENT_IMAGES_W6(where=(DT_DEB_PASSAGE<=&exec.<=DT_FIN_PASSAGE));
                         call symput('lib', cat(ANNEE_IMAGE, SEMAINE_IMAGE));
                         call symput('mois', LOWCASE(cat(ANNEE_IMAGE, SEMAINE_IMAGE)));

SAS doesn't know what fic is, because you haven't defined it. You need to tell SAS what file you want to denote as fic by using a FILENAME statement to point to the desired file.

This is a temporary file being created only for this macro variable to calculate a date.

 

How do I point to a file repository if I don't have one?

You can't.

 

Your logic is flawed somewhere. The code requires reading something from the file identified as FIC, and yet you don't have such a file. You tell me how to fix this in words (not in SAS code), because I don't know what you are trying to do.
