Well my first reaction was that it must be in the online doc...so I had a
look, but it's not there! Like you say, vlabel is there, but no label
function. Perhaps somebody else knows where to find it. And I'm curious
what other functions are out there that are seemingly undocumented...

Nice to read about a new feature that I didn't know about yet. May come
in handy one day.
When I tried to look up the label function in the documentation, all it
came up with was the Vlabel function.
Of course I ran your code and it worked OK on our SAS v8.2, but where
should I look for the label function?
