Introduction to SAS [11-19]


Copying Data Set

Copying a data set is a very common SAS programming task. It can be done easily by using the SET statement. 

From our previous example, we have created a data set called TEST

Now, we will copy this data set into a new data set called TEST2:


Data Test2;
    Set Test;

TEST2 will contain exactly the same data as TEST.
