Subject: Re: KEEP DROP array variables
Content-Type: text/plain; charset=ISO-8859-1
As has been mentioned by someone DROP and KEEP are not executable.
This example uses proc transpose to find all variable that have the
value 5. For just 66 variables but you get the idea.
do id = 1 to 10;
do _n_ = 1 to dim(snps);
snps[_n_] = rantbl(12345,.4,.3,.2,.01,.01,.001);
proc transpose out=t(where=(col1=5));
proc sql noprint;
select distinct(_name_) into :drop separated by ' ' from t;
%put NOTE: DROP=**&drop**;
