Subject:      SAS (MVS Mainframe) extract from SAS dataset

I have the output from a SAS program that I need to read, identify fields and place in a dataset to be read by a COBOL program. The program that created the SAS dataset had many APPENDS with DROPS / KEEPS. I looked in the file and saw that it had the field variable names prefixed by "NAME" and then the data. Is there a way to read the file, identify the fields and isolate each record?
