I have a large dataset and I am interested in the pearson correlations between one variable (let's call it Var1) and all the other variables in the dataset (Var2, Var3,... , VarN). I am not interested in all the correlations between all the "other" variables (e.g., Var2 with Var3, Var2 with Var4, Var2 with VarN, etc...).
I realize that if I include all the variables in the Var statement in Proc Corr that I can get all the information I am looking for. And I can use ODS to output the results and data steps to get rid of the information I don't need. The reason for this post is that I don't SAS to have to compute all those correlations if possible, as this is a really large dataset and will require a lot of processing time and power.
