Rename not working

Rename not working

Rename not working

proc sql;
create table Proj2 as
select Project, ProjectCode, Category, ProjectAmount
from Testdb.Project2;

data Proj3(rename = (Project = Proj1));
set Proj2;

When I run the second data set to change the name from Project to Proj1, the field name will not change.  The code appears to be correct.  Any ideas?

RE: Rename not working

Your above code is slightly wrong, you have a run statement at the end of a proc sql statement.

Having said that...

Why not do it all in one step???

proc sql;
create table Proj2 as
select     Project as Proj1,

from Testdb.Project2;
