Hi,

 

I have run this program in the  past with no issues, but suddenly I'm getting errors like this:

 

ERROR: A character operand was found in the %EVAL function or %IF condition where a numeric operand
is required. The condition was: &mails
ERROR: The %TO value of the %DO I loop is invalid.
ERROR: The macro EASYBIRD will stop executing.

 

But if you look at my code, the macro variable &mails is a count distinct of another field, so how can it not be a number? I feel like I'm going a little bit nuts.

No, the problem is likely inside the definition of your macro %Dev_Prod.

 

It looks like it uses CALL EXECUTE to call your macro %EasyBird.

 

Yes you quoted it with %NRSTR(), but inside your macro %Dev_Prod it's possible something unquoted it.

 

Can you post the definition of the %Dev_Prod macro?

 

Your current macro is generating:

MPRINT(DEV_PROD): call execute ("%send_email");

You want it to generate something like:

MPRINT(DEV_PROD): call execute ('%nrstr(%send_email)');

Note single quotes, and %NRSTR().

Run the macro with the debugging options on and post the log.

options mprint symbolgen;

What does a %PUT show for the variable in question?

You'll also see a WARNING that a symbolic reference could not be resolved. This happens because there are no observations in easybird, so the macro variable is not created.

Set the macro variable to 0 before the select ... into.

It's a good thought, but there are 10 observations. Never more than like, 50 under any circumstances.

Your code is too convoluted to follow exactly.  

 

You are using PROC SQL to generate the MAILS macro variable.  That can fail in two ways. 

  (A) It could not find any values and hence not assign any value to the macro variable. So it will keep its old value or just not exist.

  (B) It could be so large that SAS will generate scientific notation when setting the value.

 

Make sure to set a value before the SELECT statement and tell SAS to use a longer format when writing the value. While you are at it remove the leading/trailing spaces.

%let mails=0;
select count(distinct listing_id) format=32.
  into :mails trimmed
from easybird
;

Or better eliminate that extra query and just use the SQLOBS automatic macro variable generated from your real query.

select distinct
	am_email,
	am_name,
	director_name,
	director_email,
	cm_name,
	cc_name,
	job_title,
	listing_id,
	url,
	close_days
into
	:mail_1 - 
	:am_1 - 
	:dn_1 - 
	:de_1 - 
	:cm_1 - 
	:cc_1 - 
	:title_1 - 
	:listing_1 - 
	:url_1 - 
	:days_1 - 
from easybird
;
%let mails=&sqlobs;

I think this is the right path, but if I now the &mail is resolving to 0 every time?

What does that mean? 

 

Is the 0 causing trouble? Does your logic properly handle when there are no emails to send?  You might need an %IF &MAILS>0 %THEN %DO;... %END; block around some or all of the later steps.

 

Or do you not understand why the query is not finding any matching observations?  What do the notes SAS?

 

If you are using CALL EXECUTE() then watch out for timing issues where code is generated before the query that sets it can run.

There are definitely 10 observations in the dataset easybird. So if &mails is resolving to 0 when I run the script, it means that the rest of the variables don't load. It sends ten emails with blanks instead of values.

But does it have any non-missing values in the column you count? Run a proc freq for this variable.

Any non-missing values? They are all non-missing as it's a mandatory column in the data set. So there are no missing values, ever, if that's what you're asking. Listing_id is always populated.

Please post the log as text. There's something weird there as the errors are coming before you declare or calculate the macro variable so either the code shown isn't what's run or you messed up your session somehow. I'm assuming you've done the restart and run from scratch to get a clean log check already.
