I see a couple of things that I don't understand. First, there is no need for the DATA _NULL_ ; proc sql runs on it's own, no need for a data step. Second, I am not sure what the rest of the sql query is trying to do. Is DI_PROC_IMP_RESULT_UPDATE a stored procedure? What is the purpose of the double EXEC? If you are trying to execute a procedure in Oracle using pass-through, why are you using "select * from connection to oracle(" which suggests that you are trying to return some results to SAS, but not store them in a dataset. So, can you write back to SAS-L and describe what it is you are trying to accomplish? I am sure that once we know what it is you want to do that you will receive some useful advice.
