Hi....I am trying to list the names of the data sets in the library "sqldb" and the variable names in each data set. I want to exclude those data sets that have no records and are empty. Is there a feature that I can add to the proc contents statement that would exclude data sets that are empty? Thanks.
libname sqldb odbc DSN=darwin; run; proc contents data=sqldb._ALL_ varnum ; run;

You can use sashelp.vcolumns and vtable:
proc sql; create table WANT as select * from SASHELP.VCOLUMNS where LIBNAME="SQLDB" and MEMNAME in (select distinct MEMNAME from SASHELP.VTABLE where LIBNAME="SQLDB" and NOBS > 0); quit;
Then print want.
