Is there a way to find out the format of the variable WITHOUT opening the dataset?
I want to know whether the Age variable is character or numeric in sashelp.class.
Please note that I want to know this WITHOUT opening the dataset.
Also, I DON'T want to use PROC Contents.
Thank You for your help.

Why no proc contents?
Sashelp.vcolumn has the metadata for all datasets in your libraries. Query the table for relevant information.
