# Conditional Observation

data temp;
input group x;
cards;
1 23
1 34
1 5
1 15
2 78
2 92
2 45
2 89
2 34
2 76
3 31
4 23
4 12
;
run;

data cusum;
set temp;
by group;
if first.group then total=0;
total+x;
if total >= 35 then flag='Y';
run;

How to reset the total equal to x once the threshold is reached.
In the above example,id 1 reaches threshold (>=35) after second iteration(23+34).
so I would want the flag='Y at that record only and then for third iteration total must be equal to x and then cumulative addition
must be performed. the thrid and foruth iteration values of total must  5 and 20

## Re: Conditional Observation

Depending upon what you actually want, you may only have to add one extra condition to your if statement:

data cusum;

set temp;

by group;

if first.group or total >= 35 then total=0;

total+x;

if total >= 35 then flag='Y';

run;

Hiya, try:

data cusum;

set temp;

by group;

if first.group then total=0;

total+x;

if total >= 35 then do ;

flag='Y';

total = 0 ;

end ;

run;

It is setting total to 0 at the threshold.but I want the total to be actual total and the next observation should be equal to value of x

Try:

data cusum (drop = A B) ;

set temp;

by group;

if first.group then A=0;

A+x;

if A >= 35 then do ;

flag='Y';

B = A ;

A = 0 ;

end ;

total = sum(A,B) ;

run;
