In the thread "Rename variable names into yyyymmm_[variablename] format" http://tinyurl.com/9vt53j I recently wrote

However the major mistake is one of understanding the problem. You do not want to know how many obs are in SRTDATA; you want to find the appropriate size of the arrays in the DATA step creating MOVE. The right code is depends somewhat on the data. However it does not seem unreasonable to expect most groups to have most months.

The criticism is false since the sort preceding the DATA step used the NODUPKEY option.
