We have to use call execute to call a macro. For other

how we can call macros with in data step?..

Answer / net_ameen

Call Execute() is used to call Macro aswellas call macro variable eg: Call execute ('%macroname');
Call execute ('&macrovarname');

Call Symput() is used to create a Global macro variable from within a datastep.

Symget() is used to call a macro variable and assign its value to a datastep variable.

%include() is not a macro statement yet used to call either a macro, extn file containing codes or proc/datastep within a program to be executed together.

Resolve() is used to resolve macro variables created thru call symput within same datastep.

Hope this helps. If any argument pls post.
