Would almost require a separate option to say which row the column headers are on as well.

An option to specify which row the column headers are on would be an alternative approach.  It is not essential to my proposal on the assumption that the FIRSTOBS= row contains the headings.  Further rows can be skipped by specifying the DATAROWS= statement.

My proposal would only be needed to be implemented in the Base SAS Import procedure.  The RANGE= option for Excel sheets meets the requirement, and it is redundant for access to DBMS files.
