Charles, 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 another.

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 ?
