SAS Tip of the Month
April 2014
(for SAS and WPS)

A short tip this month. Often we have a summary of statistics with one record that we want to merge on to a dataset with, lets say, monthly records. The following DATA step takes the data in SUMMARY, with MONTHLY data to produce a COMBINED dataset with all the data:

   data combined;
      if _n_=1 then set summary;
      set monthly;

Hope this is useful. See you next month.
