I'm pretty sure that you could do this with SQL but it might be easier to use Proc Contents and specify an output data set.

Subject: Code to export variable attributes of all datasets in a library to Excel
I'm sure this has been done very often and must be in some paper / page
on the internet but I cannot find anything.
Could anyone point me to where I could find code that exports the
variable attributes of all datasets in a folder to an Excel file.
Thanks in advance for any suggestions,
