I think SAS is consciously moving away from a lot of this stuff which is why
it isn't maintained. Could be wrong, but that's my gut.
Web services can solve it as can FCMP. Easy to implement as a macro also.

I realize that it's a kludgy (sp?) fix but you can always use proc printto
to send the output to a file which you can parse. ODS might work, also. As
I recall, Barbara Okerson does this in her paper at

One suggestion for the wiki is that the word list to create a new
dictionary must be in lower case. I find it great for checking
spelling of drug names in self report data. Pity it only creates
printed output though.
