It is very inefficient to create a new data just to rename variables. PROC DATASETS can handle this task without reading any data at all except the header information. This tip will break any indices, if any, as well. -- chang_y_chung 04:58, 15 January 2011 (UTC)


This is not a bad tip. Just a not properly explained in context example. In hindsight both the data step and the proc datasets examples should be given along with Chang's excellent point about efficiency, indexes, etc. Let's take this as an opportunity to revise and reschedule the tip. --Don Henderson 14:07, 15 January 2011 (UTC)
