Subject: Re: a question about macro variable
There is a reference to macro variable &A, but it has not been created. The
fact that there is a data step variable named A is essentially irrelevant.
By the way, if you expected A to have a value of 100, there are two other
1. omitting the ampersand needed to reference macro variable &NUM1.
2. using single quotes (should be double quotes if A is to be character; no
quotes at all if A is to be numeric).
