SAS FAQ: How can I transpose all of the variables in my data set, both
numeric and character?
Without a VAR statement, the TRANSPOSE procedure transposes all numeric
variables in the input data set that are not listed in another statement.
However, character variables to be transposed must be listed in a VAR
statement. This can be promblematic if you have many character variables
(or even one character variable along with numerous numeric variables) that
you need to transpose, and you don't want to type out what could become a
lengthy VAR statement. A macro from S AS Technical Support can help.

Bits and Bytes: Transposing a Data Set
There are two ways to transpose a data set. You can use a DATA step, or you
can use the TRANSPOSE procedure. The DATA step gives you more control and
flexibility. The code for PROC TRANSPOSE is easier to write. You should
choose your method based on your SAS skills, the data you're working with,
and your desired output. In this Bits and Bytes column, author and SAS
instructor Melinda Thielbar provides a detailed description and comparison
of both methods so you can decide which one best suits your needs.
