Subject: Re: proc sql and ARRAYS
A sample data and expected result would be more helpful.
My hunch is that you can transpose table 2 to vertical structure,
so that instead of 14 vars, you have two vars, one to carry the
original var name, the other to carry the original var's value.
This way, you can join table 1 x and new table 2 x (original var1-var14).
