what does .. meant in sas macros..

Answer / arun & g.n.rao

In macros two dots (..) are used to call a library if it is
declared as a macro.

IF YOUR USING A SINGLE DOT i.e SCOTT.EMP YOU WONT GET ANY
OUTPUT AND THE ERROR OCCURED IS WORK.SCOTTEMP DOES NOT EXIST

SO WE SHOULD USE TWO DOTS WHEN CALLING A LIB NAME AS A MACRO

%LET A=SCOTT /*LIBRARY NAME*/

PROC PRINT DATA=&A..EMP;
RUN;
