I think you need to show us what those nasty "if-then, else" statements
look like to get a better idea of how/what you are doing to get a better
and bigger picture of the task at hand.
At first thought, I thought about using the Dictionary Table from SQL and
using the INTO: to create your SAS dataset names but then I realized you
might be doing something rather unique with those "if-then, else"
statements which could throw a monkey wrench into the works.
Also, it would seem easier to make those commodity variables as you build
these exception datasets, and then maybe you just need to "set" them all
together but again, without the BIG picture, I would be 2nd guessing.
More INPUT NEEDED! INPUT! INPUT! INPUT! isn't that something out of a
