Hi, the situation is : I have a dataset directory with 3 datasets A,B and C. In these datasets there are variables (numeric or char) named abc , pqr and xyz . Now, I know I am going to use these variables(or variables having familiar content) for some analysis every time, so without doing Proc Contents and manually finding the actual names of the variables, I wanted to know if there is some procedure which will point to the matching variable name I want? Can anyone help me? Thanks!
