What can SAS dataset options do?

This post is part of 'SAS | General' series

Data set options enable us to perform these operations:

  • rename variables (using rename= option)
  • select only the first or last n observations for processing (using firstobs= and lastobs= options)
  • drop variables from processing or from the output data set (using drop= option)
  • keep variables in the data set (using keep= option)
