you are not looking at transpose actually, but more of a data step processing:

data [[i]output[/i]] (drop=email rename=(new_email = email));
	set [[i]input[/i]];
	length new_email $200.;
	retain new_email;
	by wc_id;

	if first.wc_id then do;
		new_email = email;
	end;
	else do;
		new_email = trim(left(new_email)) || ";" || trim(left(email));
	end;

	if last.wc_id then output;
run;

Open in new window


of course, you can use PROC TRANSPOSE to perform the transpose but you'll get multiple columns. then from there, you'll need further processing (even more coding than above, trust me) to get your desired results...
