I thank Fred and Nick for their responses to my question about appending

For the short-term, I would be happy to try Fred's suggestion if only I
could figure out how to do it. Having checked the documentation, I can't
see how to retrieve the notes from a data set in order to copy them into
a new data set. Are they stored in some retrievable variable?
Off the top of my head, you could
use the appending set
Notes are stored as char, as in
nwofunc[note1]: generate nwofunc = wofunc *.05882353
Using a foreach loop, extract the note and note number to a (probably)
add or replace the note in the master set with data from the global macro
It's messy, probably difficult to program, but doable.
