Subject: Which Dataset is SET Currently Reading?
Content-Type: text/plain; charset=ISO-8859-1; format=flowed
If I have a SET statement reading more than one dataset my program can,
of course, know which one it is currently on by using IN= .
But what if I'm doing something like this...
proc sql noprint;
create table work.sales_files as
select memname from dictionary.tables
and upcase(memname) like 'SALES_%;
select distinct memname into : sales_files separated by ' '
What can I put in that data step to give me the name of the dataset SET
is currently reading?
I bet there's an automatic macro symbol holding this information, but
what's it called?
