Hi,

How would I modify this code to only select column names that begin with "CDD_"?
proc sql;
select name into :charlist separated by ' '
from dictionary.columns
where UPCASE(LIBNAME)="WORK" and upcase(memname)="ECM";
quit;

Thank you.

AND, you can skip the UPCASE for libname and memname (because they are always upper case), but you do need it for the variable name:

 

proc sql;
select name into :charlist separated by ' '
from dictionary.columns
where libname="SASHELP" and memname="CARS" 
 and upcase(name) like "M%";
quit;

@Chris_Hemedinger,
'ja ever notice how in NotePad++ the sql Language overlay jives real well with SAS? There's another but since most of the work I do with SAS is more than likely SQL-related (proc_sql_is_your_friend, where are you now? B|)
e-SAS regards,
