I wish to dynamically name a variable 'leakersN' in the code below. what is the proper code structure for dynamically naming a variable?
%let RN = 3725; %put RN = &RN; data has; set has; if FAULT_CODE = '20-2018' and VEHICLE_NO = "&RN" then leakers'&RN' = count(FAULT_CODE,'20-2018'); run;

Could you give a more concrete example? Dataset structure should remain constant - this is how we are able to program on the data. There is some flexibility in terms of arrays of variables, but rarely will you come across a need to have a column dynamic like that.
