Experts,

I have a SAS dataset that has one column of distinct codes.
I would like to loop through this table and use the value to select all records from a larger table where the code is equal to the value I just read in.  

How can  I do this?

i would suggest performing an inner join i.e.
proc sql;
  create table extract as
  select a.* from table_a a, table_b b
  where a.column = b.column;
quit;

table_a: the big table
table_b: the table containing the values you are interested in
column: the respective column names to perform the join (i.e. matching)
