One nice feature for this problem of proc transpose is that
it will make the variable names from the value of a column.
You will need to add a dummy column to put in the VAR statement for
PROC TRANSPOSE. And your resulting matrix will most likely have
missings where you seem to want zeros.
NAME TEST DUMMY
John AA 1
John AB 1
Sam AA 1
Sam AC 1
PROC TRANSPOSE data=in out=out ;
NAME AA AB AC
John 1 1 .
Sam 1 . 1
