This paper focuses on using SAS Proc Contents output as a tool for performing Quality Control (QC) checks on SDTM datasets. Although the code applies to SDTM data, it could easily be used for other applications as well. The SAS code presented in this paper will be using the Variable Name (NAME), Variable Number or position within the dataset (VARNUM), and Variable Label (LABEL) fields from the Proc Contents output dataset, along with the Data Step and Proc Compare to perform two different types of QC checks on SDTM datasets.
