VAR Statement

VAR variables ;

The VAR variable list is used when the dense data format is used. The names of these SAS variables are also names of the arc and nonarc variables that have data in the CONDATA= data set. If no explicit VAR list is specified, all numeric variables not on other lists are put onto the VAR list. The VAR list variables must have numeric values. The values of the VAR list variables in some observations can be interpreted differently than in other observations. The values can be coefficients in the side constraints, costs and objective function coefficients, or bound data. How these numeric values are interpreted depends on the value of each observation’s TYPE or ROW list variable value. If there are no TYPE list variables, the VAR list variable values are all assumed to be side constraint coefficients.
