Subject:      Re: %str question?

note that batchcode is not a macro, but a macro variable! You should try to make a macro if you need that:

%macro batchcode(nvisit=); %do i=1 %to &nvisit; %do j=1 %to... ... %end; %end; %mend;

... Proc ... class xxxx; var %batchcode(nvisit=5); output out=xx mean(%batchcode(nvisit=5) N=; run;

Don't know if that works. Would be helpful to see error messages! Gerhard
