Hello All,

How can I do this using Macros?

if a *in* (1 2 3) then b=a; else b=a=1;

I can think of doing it in macros this way:

%if *&a=1 or &a=2 or &a=3* %then %do; b=&a; %end; %else %do; b=%eval(&a+1); %end;

I am sure there must be a better way of doing it. Can someone spend some time on this? I specifically want to know how to avoid using 'OR' as in *&a=1 or &a=2 or &a=3* and how to do it in a simple way. ** Thanks SB CONFIDENTIALITY NOTICE: This electronic message contains information which may be legally confidential and or privileged and does not in any case represent a firm ENERGY COMMODITY bid or offer relating thereto which binds the sender without an additional express written confirmation to that effect.
