Here is a simple piece of code that causes an error and warning in the SAS log. I don't understand this errror message, what it tries to tell me:

data testdata; length Testpunkt $2.; input Testpunkt; datalines; 02 09 09 09 16 16 17 19 19 ; run; Filename GenFile "D:\SAS_KODE\"; data _null_; set testdata end = last; by Testpunkt; file GenFile linesize = 32767; if Testpunkt.first then do; x01 = 'data work.Meta_tp' ||compress(Testpunkt) || '_samanfatning' ; x02 = 'set testdata;' ; x03 = 'if Testpunkt eq' || compress(Testpunkt) || ' then output;' ; put @01 x01; put @04 x02; put @04 x03; end; if Testpunkt.last then do; x04 = 'run;' ; put @01 x04; end; run;

%include GenFile;

/* 11877 data _null_; 11878 set testdata end = last; 11879 by Testpunkt; 11880 file GenFile linesize = 32767; 11881 if Testpunkt.first then do; --------------- 557 ERROR: DATA STEP Component Object failure. Aborted during the COMPILATION phase. ERROR 557-185: Variable Testpunkt is not an object.

NOTE: The SAS System stopped processing this step because of errors. NOTE: DATA statement used (Total process time): real time 0.00 seconds cpu time 0.00 seconds

11882 x01 = 'data work.Meta_tp' ||compress(Testpunkt) || '_samanfatning' ; 11883 x02 = 'set testdata;' ; 11884 x03 = 'if Testpunkt eq' || compress(Testpunkt) || ' then output;' ; 1 12039 12040 %include GenFile; WARNING: Physical file does not exist, D:\SAS_KODE \ ERROR: Cannot open %INCLUDE file GENFILE. */

The code is not real, but the problem is real. The code is oversimplified. It is about getting SAS to create code based on a dataset (in this case the dataset TESTDATA.
