The FSEDIT Procedure

FSEDIT Procedure Syntax

Restriction: Do not use any of the other statements when you use the NEW= option in the PROC FSVIEW statement. (The VAR statement causes an error; the FORMAT, INFORMAT, LABEL, and WHERE statements are ignored.)

PROC FSEDIT <DATA=data-set | NEW=data-set <LIKE=data-set>>
<SCREEN=SAS-catalog<.screen-entry>> | <display-options>


FORMAT variable-list format <... variable-list-n format-n>;
INFORMAT variable-list informat <... variable-list-n informat-n>;
LABEL variable='label' <... variable-n='label-n'>;
VAR variable <... variable-n>;
WHERE expression;

The PROC FSEDIT statement is required. The other statements are optional and are used as follows:
