The Summary data set contains one observation and one variable (Mean_HR). The trick is how to add this single value to each observation in the original Blood_Pressure data set. Many programmers first think of using a MERGE statement. The problem with this solution is that there is no BY variable. 9: Demonstrating a conditional SET statement (to combine summary data with detail data) data Percent_of_Mean; set Blood_Pressure(keep=Heart_Rate Subj); if _n_ = 1 then set Summary; Percent = round(100*(Heart_Rate / Mean_HR)); run; It’s important to understand exactly what is happening here and why you need to set the summary data set only once.

A listing of data set Units is shown here: Subj Weight Height 001 80kgs 5ft 3in 002 190lbs 6' 1" 003 70KG. 5ft 11in 004 177LbS. 5' 11" 005 100kgs 6ft Notice that the Weight units are not always in the same case and some of the units end in periods. For Height, the abbreviation 'ft' or 'in' is used; sometimes a single quote and double quote represent feet and inches. You would like to create two new variables (Weight_Lbs and Height_Inches) that are numeric variables and are equal to the weight in pounds and the height in inches, respectively.

Com/bookstore. Chapter 1: Tasks Involving Conversion 11 My younger son, who is a wizard at programming, suggested I solve this problem using a Perl regular expression. This solution is not simpler than the previous solution, but it demonstrates the versatility of regular expressions. You start by using PRXPARSE to compile the regular expression: /^(\d+)(\D)/ This regex (this is what Perl programmers call regular expressions) is looking for one or more digits followed by a non-digit. The ^ in the beginning of the expression says to start the search at the beginning of the string.
