Content-Type: text/plain; charset="us-ascii"

How did you build this macro variable in the first place?
Anyway, I have a couple of answers to processing a list of files
which I am presenting at a Hands-On-Workshop titled
How To Use Proc SQL select into for List Processing
* MWSUG in Detroit, MI, Oct 23-24
