If I have 2 data sets:

data investment;  

   begin='01JAN1990'd;

   end='31DEC2009'd;

  run;    

data investment_2;  

   begin='01JAN1990'd;

     run; 

I wish to write a program that will give me list of all columns that are in investment but not in investment_2. So in this case, the variable 'end'.

How to do this? I dont want to list out the column names using proc contents on eaqch dataset and then manually eyeball it and check for differences.
