I am auto-creating variable names, and sometimes the names extend beyond 32 characters in length. Rather than manually adjusting the process, I want to override the system limit of 32 characters.
SAS Support doesn't know how to do this; however, I did do this twice before (at a former place of work), but I don't remember exactly how I did it. I think there was some sort of option like setnamelength or something (logical) like that. Any help? Thanks.
Thanks for the direction. I might be dull: I can't find a means of extending the lengths of my variable names under this designation. The VALIDVARNAME option seems to only allow up to 32 characters in a variable name. Did I miss something? What option could I set to allow variable names like A_VARIABLE_NAME_WITH_MORE_THAN_32_CHARACTERS ? Thanks.
