Maybe I missed something while reading this.
I am not sure how you can (accurately) rearrange the order of the variables in
the descriptor portion of a SAS data set without re-ordering the variables
I guess I don;t understand how PROC SQL can...can someone explain it to me?
Perhaps a better approach to Joe Winters' problem is to use the RENAME
statement in PROC DATASETS and just change the names of the variables in the
descriptor portion. That approach would get him, I think, where he wants
without excessive computing resources.
