Subject:      Re: MACRO VAR

A couple of things.

1) Remove these quotes. You are literally asking if the substring returns the string "0".

>%if %substr(&dat,3,1) ne "0"

2) The macro variable title is local to the macro title3. By the time you get around to resolving it, it doesn't exist anymore. Try adding a %global title; statement inside the macro before you make any other references to the macro variable title.

Hope that helps.
