This is attempting to be a "function-style" macro. That's why it's invoked from the %put/%let statement, so it will have a context.

Good catch on local %one, it is supposed to be %local_one.

Thinking again about the semi-colons you raised. A semi-colon on the %local_one invocation causes %local_two to fail, removing the semi-colon gets me what I want. But, see below for the rsubmited version, ain't so hopeful, even with the semi-colon removed from %one ( and a comment added as Kevin suggested ).

It appears that SAS is incapable of separating the %one macro statement from the 'endrsubmit' statement unless the semi-colon is specified. Any ideas?

3048 %global var; 3049 %macro local_one; 3050 %let var = 4; 3051 %mend; 3052 3053 %macro local_two; %* colon after macro call; 3054 %local_one; 3055 &var 3056 %mend; 3057 3058 %put %nrstr(%local_two) returns %local_two; %local_two returns NOTE: Line generated by the macro variable "VAR". 1 4 - 180 MPRINT(LOCAL_TWO): 4

ERROR 180-322: Statement is not valid or it is used out of proper order.

That is interesting. I wonder what might happen if you tried to call the macro with something between it and the ENDRSUBMIT statement such as a comment.

I looked again at your original macro:

%macro two; ; %* need this semi-colon before the RSUBMIT, why? ; rsubmit; %one; endrsubmit; %put Inside %nrstr(%two &remote_var) has a value of &remote_var; &remote_var ^^^^^^^^^^^ %mend two;

The four is laying about for a good reason. My initial thoughts were wrong because it is apparently a global macro variable, which should have been obvious because the macro variable and not the value would have been laying about. The value "4" is laying about because the macro variable resolves amid nothing (no data set or procedure) by virtue of the underlined portion about. There is a good chance that you have provided this as a bare example and I have misinterpreted it.

I also looked at your local example again:

2539 %global var; 2540 %macro local_one; 2541 %let var = 4; 2542 %mend; 2543 2544 %macro local_two; 2545 %one; ^^^^ 2546 &var 2547 %mend; 2548 2549 %put %nrstr(%local_two) returns %local_two; %local_two returns 4

LOCAL_TWO calls ONE, not LOCAL_ONE. There is no indication from the log that the macro ONE does not exist, though.

I hope I have not missed too much this time :)
