Not sure I understand why you would want to create lots of datasets.  By group processing is very fast in SAS, as categorical processing in SQL is also very good.  So why split the data up and then do optimized functions on large numbers of datasets, just do the optimized functions once on one large dataset with by group processing.

There has to be a large advantage in order to consider doing this.

This ia FAQ on SAS-L and some answers have been harvested.

This page has several solutions, including the obvious: hashing.
