Have you considered a view?

data view_whatever / view=view_whatever; set whatever.whatever(drop=variables); run;

proc upload data=view_whatever out=someelse.someelse; run;

I am dismayed. I have a Sasfile on Mvs which has 150 observations. I am moving the file to Unix with Sas Connect Proc Upload. I want to drop 50 of the variables so the upload processes faster.

The following doesn't work: proc upload data=whatever.whatever(drop=variables) out=someelse.someelse; run;

I don't see a way to drop the variables with Proc Datasets. I want to avoid creating another work or permanent Sasfile if possible. Anybody?
