I have like 30 libraries ( created by another macro as an initial setup). I am checking if my interested dataset exists in the library. How can I do this? The purpose of this code is, if this dataset exists then I want to run another macro/data step. I created the sample. Thank you for your suggestions, and sorry if any mistakes in my sample; I will correct them as I get suggestions.
** Just created the libraries, for example; libname s1 'D:\New folder'; libname s2 'D:\New folder 1'; data s1.chk; x='y'; run; ** if dataset 'chk' in 's1' or 's2' library then the the following code has to run; otherwise need a note 'No dataset exists'; *&lib is the library where the dataset existed; data chk_&lib; set &lib.chk; flag ='Y'; run;
%if %sysfunc(exist(&lib..chk)) %then %do; /* conditional code */ %end;
Thank you @Kurt_Bremser . This code works. However, I have an extension question. I have 30 libraries. Is there anyway &lib' created automatically by using like dictionary. tables or vcolumn ? otherwise, I have to run a macro for each library.
