Hi,

 

I have a library called datatime. In this library i have a dataset names like

 

data_history_collection_01

data_history_collection_02

data_history_collection_03

data_history_collection_04

data_history_collection_05

data_history_collection_06

data_history_collection_07

 

Problem: every month the above table is generating with new version. 

Solution:I need to extract the new version of dataset when ever its creates. that means recent dataset.

 

Thanks.

What do you mean by extract?
What have you tried so far?
A starting point could be exploring SASHELP.VTABLE and try to build some macro logic.

Retrieve the last dataset name from dictionary.tables:

proc sql noprint;
select max(memname) into :memname
from dictionary.tables
where libname = 'DATATIME';
quit;

After that, use &memname where needed.
