Thank you for your answer.
You say " to define range of different data types, and nest SQL within the data step"
Intersting, Could you give some exemples ?

You might want to look up "The DS2 Procedure: SAS Programming Methods at Work" by Peter Eberhardt and published by SAS.
It's available now on the O'Reilly Safari Books On-line even though the publish date listed there is 18Mar2016.

SAS Macro language should not be considered in this comparison. The macro language generates text that is not specific to the data step.
