HI,

How do i get a return code of 12 from a SAS macro. I just use SAS to compare 2 flat files that are sorted. I need to test for a return code 12.

So where does this return code 12 come from and where do you want to test for it.

You need to learn to explain EXACTLY what it is that you want.

Besides, why are you using SAS to do this when a perfectly good IBM utility already exists.

Hi EXPAT,

I need to get that return code of 12 for a JCL executing a BASE SAS Macro to Compare two files.

As u mentioned, this could have been done using an IBM utility but still the requirement is to use a SAS Macro and produce an output file that contains only changed data.

I Dont get any problem in the JCL executing succesfully and creating a changed data file. But i need this to satisfy a test scenario by getting a return code of 12..

May I suggest that you compare the resource consumed by both methods and see how much difference there is.

And who set this requirement ???

Show what this macro does, someone might be able to help you modify it. There is not predefined standard macro in SAS to compare 2 flat files.
