We have a very limited SASData space in our company. So we generally download tables that we create for our analysis. However after a while updating analysis we have to upload our data to SAS enviroment again. However because these tables ara huge in size, is there a way to only upload coloumns which i need for my analysis.

To get things straight:
You have server space with SAS data.
You download tables and run analyses locally.
When finished, you need to upload the results back into server space.
- do you create new tables in server space, or do you need to update some columns in existing server tables?
- do you have a server SAS installation and local SAS installations, or is the server just filespace? Or do you use some other (non-SAS) software for local analysis?

Depending on HOW you are moving the SAS datasets around you can usually use a dataset option of Keep or Drop to specify the variables in the resulting data set.
VERY simple example:
set Sashelp.class (keep=sex age weight);
only keeps the three listed variables in the output data set.
