This works to preserve variable names, but not their labels. I use variable names with a numbered prefix (comp1 comp2 comp3...) with variable labels that identify each one. The numbered prefix allow reference to types of variable using the colon, eg comp:. I sometimes do operations through IML and would like to output datasets with the original variable names and labels. Can that be done?
