Hi Stef,

Make sure that your path and name are enclosed in double quotes otherwise the macro variable will not resolve (inside single quotes that is). You will also need two periods, one to end the variable and one to be the actual period like: "C:\PROGRAMS\Graphs\qqplot_&dataset..gif";

You might also want to think about adding gsfmode=replace in your goptions statement as well.
