So Many Variables: Too Many Labels Moving Labels From One Variable to Another
Source: SAS Institute
So a person has one hundred plus variables to copy and recode and one wants their original variable labels to transfer with them. Good luck with that! SAS will let the person do all kinds of things with the labels but it will not let him transfer them to a new variable as easily as one might think but with CALL EXECUTE and a few lines of code one can save themselves some time and a whole lot of typing.
