You might have already got the solution. If not, then you have to make the following changes in your your program:
In the "data" statement use the "keep=" option e.g.
data housing(keep=cust ........);
In the "set" statement SAS does not like any option. Therefore after ";" use "rename" e.g.
Please be careful about the var names in "keep=" those are new renamed variables.

I am having a few problems with the following syntax.... I am trying to use
rename in version 8 to change the name of some variables before merging them
with a similar data set but they don't appear to change for me. I have
looked in the SAS Language reference book (for version 6) and in the online
doc for version 8 but cant seem to get it right.
data housing.partner2 (rename =(cust_id=part_id p_id=c_id faflag=pfaflag
set housing.partner1 (keep = cust_id p_id faflag ra_amt rent_amt p_inc);
Thanks in advance.
