1) Using proc means options: NOPRINT and OUTPUT enables get computational printable output in a dataset.

     Use other procedure to create the desired report with any lablels.

 

2) Alternatively, rename the variables to their label using convention like:

       rename=(alfa = 'First letter'n)

    and run proc means.

Re: How to print only labels (not var names) in PROC MEANS

I strongly recommend @Shmuel's first option: create a data set and then print with all of the control that Proc Print or another Report procedure has.

 

Another option, depending on your actual need from proc means is to use a different report procedure such as proc Report or Tabulate.

 

And a least favorite option is to modify the template for creating proc means output
