good tip --Phil Miller (STATPROF) 11:34, 6 April 2009 (UTC)

good tip! --Nancy 19:51, 6 April 2009 (UTC)

Good Tip. Just note that character data which includes commas and or quotes can cause you grief when creating CSV files It is good practice to have double qoutes around the character data in a CSV file, as some applications interpret the term CSV very strictly and require double quotes around the character data. --Monei011 22:05, 19 August 2009 (UTC)

Don: I corrected the example on the page. It had a misspelling, namely putnamess rather than putnames, but doesn't that demand that the wording of the tip should be changed as, now, there is a direct way to accomplish the task? --Art T 22:45, 9 April 2011 (UTC)


I think the name is still accurate. In a wiki you can't rename and article. But you can move it to a new article and the wiki will automatically create a redirect. --Don Henderson 22:52, 9 April 2011 (UTC)


Sorry. Just realized you said the wording of the tip, not the title. So, yes, it probably should be changed. Is putnames=no new in 9.2? --Don Henderson 23:24, 9 April 2011 (UTC)


The good news!: I, for one, didn't know that it was there and was quite happy to discover that a direct way did, in fact, now exist!--Art T 00:51, 10 April 2011 (UTC)


This tip should be updated! With 9.4 one can easily include or exclude either variable names or labels. see, e.g., http://support.sas.com/documentation/cdl/en/proc/67327/HTML/default/viewer.htm#p1oghgzuefh7oin1tpw0hodyegko.htm --Art T 13:44, 9 April 2015 (CDT)


Don, Just realized that I never answered you question from 4 years ago. Yes, putnames was new in 9.2 (see: http://support.sas.com/kb/41/735.html) --Art T 13:41, 4 August 2015 (CDT)
