I'm gone totally macro blank (maybe its because its friday afternoon) , so i need some help. If my macro var contains a "&" i get the following error.

How can i correct that..

data null; nav='K&M'; call symput('name',nav); run;

data null; file script(txt) notitle noprint; put ".se xnavn=&name"; run;

SYMBOLGEN: Macro variable NAME resolves to 'K&M' WARNING: Apparent symbolic reference M not resolved. MPRINT(FORSIDE): put ".se xnavn='K&M' ";

-- Hilsen Lars
