I have seen this Problem earlier when I helping DM people Just before the
FDA submission, that time I used a macro given to me by one of my colagues,
the Idea he used to do this is write a macro is to check each and every
dataset in the Library make a list of the all the variables and Labels with
the same name out to an .csv file then make changes as per requirements and
read it back into SAS and save the changes you made in the excel sheet to
the SAS datasets
