I'm just new to SAS... just two days now ... lol .. I imported a data .txt which have variable names in number range (0-4, 5-10, etc). It resulted to a 0?4, 5?10 etc.. how could I remove the ? symbol?

Set the following option and rerun your import.
Then SAS will automatically create names that replace spaces and invalid characters with underscores.
Also note the difference between SAS variables and labels.
Run a PROC CONTENTS on the data to see both.
