Subject: AW: autocall
option sasautos=('c:\sas\macros' sasautos);
in the AUTOEXEC-file!
SAS sets up some paths in the config-file (with a different syntax: -set
sasautos (...)), that you should keep (e.g. they are used to find trim
AND put '' arround your path, because it's a physical path-name.
2) Who did you put your macros in the directory? They must be in different
files. One file for one macro and the filename must be the same (with
extension .sas) as the name of the macro.
3) There is a SAS option to tell SAS to look for the macro a second time, if
it's not found at first time (sorry, don't know the option name). By
default, SAS tries to find the macro at the first invocation, and won't try
it again in the same session.
