proc contents noprint fmtlen data=sashelp.class out=work.contents(keep=varnum name format: length); format age 6.2 name $quote15.; run; proc sort data=work.contents; by varnum; run; filename putstmts temp; data _null_; file putstmts; set work.contents; put +3 'put "' name $14.-r '=" ' name @; if formatl gt 0 then do; length fmt $16; fmt = trimn(format)||trim(put(formatl,best.-l))||'.'||trim(put(formatd,best.-l))||'-l'; put fmt @; end; put ';'; run; data _null_; file print; set sashelp.class; put _page_; %inc putstmts / source2; run;
