it's not clear to me, what you want to do:
- what do you mean with "opening of the table"? In SAS there are at least 2
different ones. One with a interactive access with FSP or AF (a explicite
OPEN is made to the table and there is a record oriented access to the
table). The second is a file oriented access with a implicit open with a
DATA step or a PROC.
- what do you mean with "bring up to date"? What should be the contents of
the missing variables after that "update"? What do you expect to change, if
the detail level is changed? Is there a logic to create the X's from the
contents of IDENT?
