First, your Sample_Plot_3 can't possibly be the code you are using, the Do is not a %do, the to is not a %to, your sample_plot_2 invocation is not %sample_plot_2. You dont' specify how beg_date is passed, is a number or a date constant ?

Try this:

%Macro PlotThem (beg_date=, end_date=);

%local date; %do date = %sysevalf (&beg_date) %to %sysevalf (&end_date); %Sample_Plot_2 (tgt=&date, sample_model=1) %end;


%PlotThem (beg_date = '01jan00'd, end_date='10jan00'd);

%sysevalf will return the number represented by the date constant it is passed. If beg_date is already the number representing the date of interest, %sysevalf will return it unchanged.
