can i use proc report for reading this dataset with 29lakh rows and 8 variables.

Proc report or any other SAS reporting procedures doesn't have row limitations,

Only thing is, your query will take a while to get results compare to small datasets.

Once upon a time I was taught that between 60 and 80 "rows" of text depending on font size were a page. So 10,000 rows would be roughly 125 to 150 pages. Which seems way too long for most "reports" to be useful. Since 1 lakh = 100,000 you are talking about roughly 36,250 PAGES of text.


Who is actually going to read that?


If you actually mean to summarize the data down to a useable amount then likely yes. But displaying that many rows as list output the real question might be 'Why?'
