you could try the filevar= option on the infile statement,

or call execute to call a macro.

Tip with call execute and macros, wrap your macro call in a %nrstr to force the macro to be evaluated at the end of the dataset, rather than in the datastep.

data _null_; set sashelp.vtable; call execute('%nrstr(%mymac('||libname'||));'); run;
