Subject:      How to pass the filename to PUT statement in DDE?
Content-Type: text/plain; charset=ISO-8859-1


Can somebody help me in getting the following code to work? &fname does not get resolved, and PUT is not working with double quotation marks.

Thanks in advance!

filename TRY1 dde 'excel|system'; %let fname=A_FILE.xls; data _null_; file TRY1; put '[open("C:\sas\&fname.")]'; run;
