Re: SAS DATA SET file name size

Doesn't look like you can give a non-default name to a SAS data set. If you're working with DBMS tables, you would be able to specify non-default names (assuming the database allows longer ones). That would involve using a name literal -- more on that at the bottom of this page:

Note the restriction:
You can use a name literal only for variables, statement labels, and DBMS column and table names.
