Hello, i want to import Json file, i did it and the program work well, but i want to write it in macro. Instead full_address variable i want to put macro variable &comm.

but when i write it as is, it's not work, i tried different options, but still i didn't get answer.

I don't see anything explicitly wrong with your code. It is a bit weird to have the filename defined outside the macro? Wouldn't you have to define it for all files then?

 

Have you tried running your macro with SYMBOLGEN and MPRINT on?

 

OPTIONS SYMBOLGEN MPRINT;

 

Also, are you generating any errors in your code that are displayed to the log.
