While I've probably already posted far more than my fair share to this
thread, I discovered a tip this afternoon that I can't recall ever having
been mentioned on the list.
Did you know that: there are yet more ways to describe variable lists, in
sas procedures, beyond _character_, _numeric_, var1-varN, vara--varz,
using the colon wildcard (e.g., var:) and _all_?
This afternoon I discovered two more, namely: vara-numeric-varz and vara-
character-varz. The first selects all numeric variables including and
between vara and varz, while the second selects all character variables
including and between vara and varz.
