Here's a second vote for "The Little SAS book" - it's great for starters.
Also take a look at the base SAS concepts docs...

Ok. I've been trying to modify a data set using the keep function and
the message I get is that there are 0 observations and 0 variables.
Also that the variables I have named have not been referenced. What am
I doing wrong? This is what I have typed in:
data kim; libname in "s:\MPH..." data in.kim2; set in.kim; keep age
income sex; run; Am I not referencing the location correctly or what?
Also, I found out that I need to use the "lrecl" command. Where does
that go? Can anyone recommend a good book to help with modifying data?
