Shouldn't the question then shift to, "can SAS handle the amount of
variablesI want to deal with?'
The number of variables is one thing, the lengths of the variables is
Do i = 1 to 99999999999999999999999999999999;
retain x1 - x99999999999999999999999999999997 ;
is a different animal from the example given earlier in this thread.
That said, another angle is not how many variables can SAS handle but
instead is; what are limits of your storage ?
