I don't think it will work. Perhaps you will get a warning:
QUESTIONABLE_VAR not resolved. I had the same problem once. I won't
use call symput in macro any more if there is "run;" or other data
step or proc boundary in the same macro.
I think the reason is : during the compile time, macro compiler don't
recognize the macro variable QUESTIONABLE_VAR since it is not
generated until execute time.
