While SQL doesn't accept the colon wildcard specifier, data set options may be used in SQL as well. So, move your var: to a keep dataset option and use select *.

proc sql; create table t1 as select * from t ( keep = var: ) ; quit;

-----Original Message----- From: [] On Behalf Of John Lin Sent: 2006, March, 17 3:50 PM To: SAS-L@LISTSERV.UGA.EDU Subject: any wild card for select variables in proc sql?


I got a quick question, as follows:

proc sql; create table T1 as select var1,var2 from T;

I am wondering if any wild card for variable names, like:

proc sql; create table T1 as select var: from T;

Unfortunately, the above does not work.

Thanks in advance.
