Here's another approach entirely. If you use PROC PRINTTO to divert
the printed output of PROC CORR to an ASCII file, and if you also set
page width narrow enough to ensure that you don't have multiple columns
of correlations to deal with, then reading the information you need from
the ASCII files in another data step might be very simple.
