For a special case, ie. all the vars are numeric, use proc transpose:

data xx; x1=1; x2=2; x3=3; output; x1=5; x2=7; x3=9; output; label x1='lab_x1' x2='lab_x2' x3='lab_x3' ;

proc transpose out=yy; var _all_;

data yy; length _name_ $40; set yy; _name_=_label_;

proc transpose out=xx (drop=_name_);

option nocenter; proc print; run;

Obs lab_x1 lab_x2 lab_x3

1 1 2 3 2 5 7 9

If you have character vars, you still can do transpose, but the vars in result data will all be character.
