    1. data file- daily equity return from 1971 to 2007;
    2. Assuming the volatility at time t is estimated by the daily return data
    of the previous 252 days (trading days in a year);
    3. Q: How to write the program to continuously estimate the daily volatility
    from 1971 to 2007 and write these volatility estimates into a separate file?

    well you probably need a macro for this

    data all; run;

    %macro loop;

    %do i=252 %to &nobs;
    proc summary data=in;
    var r;
    where &i-251<time<=&i;
    output out=vol&i std=;

    data all;
    set all vol&i;

    data all;
    set all;
