Is there a way in SAS to print the value of a variable in label using proc sql?
I have a situation where I would like to put the value of a variable in the label in SAS. Example: Median for Total_Days is 2. I would like to put this value in Days_Median_Split label. The median keeps on changing with varying data, so I would like to automate it.
 Phy_Activity Total_Days "Days_Median_Split: Number of Days with Median 2"
 No 0 0
 No 0 0
 Yes 2 1
 Yes 3 1
 Yes 5 1
Thanks so much!
