Subject: Re: how to execute SAS macro in a scheduled manner
to get it more concrete:
I don't think that there is a %sleep macro, so I tried
to let the execution sleep for 5 seconds at that location.
To use only %sysfunc(sleep(5)) is not a good idea, because that function
returns the seconds as result.
That should do it (don't know if 5 sec are ok, could be less or more...)
