Using the literal month value from a date as a macro within a macro

Experts,

I don't know if this can be done, but I have a macro that is doing some processing.
I would like to  read the dates.
%MACRO Enroll(enrldt);
   ..................Processing.......................
%MEND;

%Enroll('01JAN2013'D);
%Enroll('01FEB2013'D);
%Enroll('01MAR2013'D);
%Enroll('01APR2013'D);
%Enroll('01MAY2013'D);

The compare within the macro is working fine.

 if datepart(First_Enrollment_Date) = &enrldt;

If possible, I would like to use the literal month from the dates listed (Format monname3.) to concatenate the output table being created so it would be:
LOB_JAN
LOB_FEB
LOB_MAR
LOB_APR
LOB_MAY

Is there a way to do this.  Open to any suggestions.

In addition, I would like to export the created table in the macro using the concatenated table name
PROC EXPORT DATA=LOB_JAN  OUTFILE=........

Hi

Use:
DATA LOB_%SYSFUNC(PUTN( &enrldt, MONNAME3.));
  SET DS_NAME;
 ...
RUN;

PROC EXPORT DATA=LOB_%SYSFUNC(PUTN( &enrldt, MONNAME3.)) OUTFILE=......;
RUN;

Open in new window
