Subject: Macro syntax question: summary
Thanks to Ian Whitlock, Dennis Diskin, and Andreas Grueninger for pointing
out a couple of things: first, that since I was using passthru to MS ACCESS,
the datepart function would not make sense; second, that it's clearer to
code %if %length(&where) ne 0 %then %do; and third, I was using '28FEB2002'x
instead of '28FEB2002'd (which would make a huge difference). I finally gave
up on passthru and used the LIBNAME ODBC engine instead.
