you all know: treading SAS-datasets into SPSS cuts long variable names
to 8 characters and translates these - if they are not unique - into
shortenings like V24. To see, which original variable was behind this
shortening, I label the SAS-variables in SAS with their original variable
As long as I do the labelling with a datastep and the statement
this works fine and SPSS takes over the labels. When I do it with proc
datasets (which would shorten the
process with large datasets) SPSS will not recognize the labels and sometime
even run into ERROR.
Does anybody know, why this happens and how I can use proc datasets in a way
that SPSS recognizes the labels?
