Subject: finding a variable in a dataset that has exactly/almost the same
name that i ask for?
Content-Type: text/plain; charset=ISO-8859-1
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!
