|Subject: ||Re: Any way to embed the sas code inside the data set|
1. I am using proc contents with ODs right now. My problem actually is I
have so many different versions of highly similar code. Lucky me I started
SAS codding with version 8 so I have taken advantage of the long file name,
but still looking at and looking for files are dazzling.
2. If I can open up my direct to you, David, you will see high hierachcy of
directies built already. I will go for the catalog or C++ idea eventually.
For now Ian's %Let.... tip is simple and quick to go. Just have to build the
infrastructure one file at a time.
Thank you for all your help.
