Tips:Sorting of variables by name inside a data set
You can arrange the variables in a dataset by their name using PROC SQL. In this example, WORK.SAMPLE is the data set created to show the result.
data work.sample; x=1; m=2; c=3; b=4; aa=1; k=2; cd='A'; run; proc sql noprint; select strip(name) into :vars separated by ' ' from dictionary.columns where libname = upcase("work") and memname = upcase("sample") order by 1; quit; data work.sample; retain &vars.; set work.sample; run;
