Subject: Is there a way to create variable containing the pdv?
Suppose you had the following program:
data test(keep=a y z);
input a b c x y;
1 2 3 4 5
Is there a way, from within the datastep, to create a variable that contains
the names of all of the variables that are in the pdv. Thus, in the above
example, say a variable called variables that would have the value:
"a b c x y z"? And, similarly, create another variable that has the names of
the variables in the keep statement (i.e., in this case, a variable called
kept with the value "a y z")?
Thanks in advance,
