You can use PROC FREQ, though versions prior to 6.11 or 6.12 will truncate
string distinction testing at 16 bytes. FREQ is also limited to a maximum
of 32,767 distinct values of a variable (2**15 - 1).
You could use SQL, which avoids both these limitations:
select count distinct( stringvar ) as count
