Subject:      filename ref to a variable....

Would someone send me an example on how to assign a filename to the variable in a data step? The purpose of what I want is to fille the file with the list of classes the teacher is teaching and have the file contain a list of classes. ie: say jones is teaching precalculus, calculus 124 and multivaried calculus then h:\classes\jones contains: precalculus calculus 124 multivaried calculus

something like this seems reasonable but filename doesn't like "||"

ie: data _null_; set temp(keep=name class); by name; if then do; filename nfile "h:\classes\"||name; file nfile lrecl=255; end; put class; run;

thanks for your input!!!
