What is this, and why?

What is SPM? How did it come to pass that there's a page in the User namespace for a non-existent user?--Howles 16:20, 11 September 2009 (UTC)

The error probably arose because there was a typo in the user name on tip page and somebody followed the link and created a page without checking the user existed. - Cameron (talk) 18:57, 2 March 2014 (CST)

Never mind. I see now that SPM is the initial creator of Tips:Easy Way to Get All Variable Names From a Dataset. Still don't understand how that happened but that SPM is no longer a registered user. Anyway, the link in that tip to SPM's Discussion page is intended to let people communicate with SPM. But if SPM is no longer a user, that can't happen. Better I think to remove the whole "Contact me" sentence from the tip. Discussion of Tips:Easy Way to Get All Variable Names From a Dataset belongs onTips Talk:Easy Way to Get All Variable Names From a Dataset.--Howles 16:37, 11 September 2009 (UTC)

Actually the creating user is User:Spm, not User:SPM. On a wiki the capitalisation is significant. - Cameron (talk) 18:57, 2 March 2014 (CST)

Question from user on twitter: Not clear, what is syntax for &dsn? libname.dsname? --LainieH 16:48, 23 September 2009 (UTC).

I think this question belongs at Tips Talk:Easy Way to Get All Variable Names From a Dataset.--Howles 18:29, 23 September 2009 (UTC)
