Getting Your Metadata Using PROC METADATA
Source: SAS Institute
A lot of useful information from metadata is available to the programs through PROC METADATA. It can be hard to figure out how to extract the necessary data though. The purpose of this paper is to provide easy examples for some basic things one can get from metadata using PROC METADATA and XML maps. The examples that will be given were created on SAS 9.1.3 on UNIX.
