Can we store the content of the PROC UNIVARIATE extreme values table in a SAS data set?

Is all great to see the top <N> lowest and highest values from a dataset, but can they somehow be stored in a SAS data set?

I was looking at the OUTPUT statement but doesn't seem to have anything that will allow me to store those <n> lowest and <n> highest values in some data set and work with them further.

Any help greatly appreciated.

Any SAS table output can be stored in a dataset with the ODS.  Insert the statement

ods output ExtremeObs=myExtremes;

into your proc univariate statements. This will create table myExtremes with the contents of the printed table..
