You should take the error message tho heart. The stored sas macro facility
is very limited and has the appearance of a poorly maintained afterthought.
The best way currently to create libraries of macros is to use the
autosource options and name every thing .sas. One warning: The manual
leads one to believe that he should use liibname to specify the name and
location of you macro library, but he actually must use filename.

Subject: Stored compiled macros: multiple catalogs
Does anyone know how, in the same SAS session, to effectively change
the SASMACR libref? Or even if it can be done? That is, to switch
between different catalogs of stored compiled macros during a given
SAS session, located in different places on my computer?
I have tried setting
beforehand, but still get
ERROR: Unable to clear or re-assign the library <SASMACR> because it is
still in use.
in the LOG.
Is there any way to clear or de-assign SASMSTORE - or set it to null, as
interim - before reassigning, does anyone know? Or do I have to end &
restart my SAS session completely?
