Subject: Re: SCL Choosing fr common vars in multi sets
Sorry to bother all with my AF 101
question. I went back to my
SCL/AF course notes and reviewed
the VARLIST screen variable type.
With VARLIST type attribute with
open files listed in the LIST
attribute, if the user types a ?
prompt in the variable a list
shows only the common variables in
the two sets. Before the user can
do that I have the her choose from
available datasets by typing ?
prompt in screen variables with
INPUT type attribute for each one.
When each of those is filled, SCL
code for each variable opens the
Thanks for your patience.
I am trying to use AF/SCL to set
up a merge where the user chooses
datasets then chooses the "by"
variables from the list of
variables common to all files.
VARLIST is the only function that
list variables in a data set, but
it will only show a list for one
IN SAS ASSIST/DATA
shows exactly what I want to do.
How do I program that feature?
