Hello Team,

 

I called a program inside of my program and that program creates a dataset. How can I make the program runs inside my program. I assume just calling a program doesn't make the program run inside another program.

 

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

Blue & Blue

What do you mean by "inside"?

Can you share the code you are referring to?

 

If you want one SAS program to call another program file the instruction would typically be %include.

 

A statement in a SAS Program like this:

%include "C:\folder\programfolder\someprogramname.sas";

would bring the contents of the file into the SAS session and treat it as program text at that point in the program.

 

It is a good idea to explicitly end all procedures or data steps in program steps in file that is for include use to have a RUN; statement at the end.

The %INCLUDE statement allows you to run a SAS program inside another one.
