    What is your best advice about converting variable names from a previous
    twenty-year old student information system to Banner student information
    system and avoid re-writing the sequence of PC SAS code, logic, etc.
    Certainly, conversion of some variables are not as simple as a name change
    but involve a different twist to the logic in the new environment, for
    example.

    Any program code in any language is dependent on dataset variable
    names.
    Change column names you get to review the source code, no way around
    that one.
