Subject:      Unfamiliar CALL EXECUTE syntax
Content-Type: text/plain; charset="iso-8859-1"

I copied the following code excerpt from a message posted back in 7/97 by Bruce Kayton and it works, but I can't explain it, having never seen the !!objname!! syntax used here. Could someone please explain what is happening here? The code looks like:

data _null_; set sashelp.vcatalg (where=(libname='WORK' and memname='GSEG')); call execute('%replay('!!objname!!');'); run;

It goes through the sashelp.vcatalg table and pulls off graphics entries, and then eventually calls a PROC GREPLAY to replay each entry. I think the catalog entry name is being passed to !!objname!!, but as I said before, I've never seen that syntax before, and I couldn't find it anywhere in the on-line help.

Thank you very much in advance, Nancy
