Custom transpose

[ Edited ]

Hi,

 

I have a requirement on custom transpose. I have duplicate account numbers (Column 1) and it’s corresponding indicators (Column 2). I have to transpose the indicators in the way they are mentioned in Column3.  For Example, rows 1, 8, 15, 22 and 23 have plain indicators. So, in column3, those indicators alone should be transposed for the corresponding Account numbers. Rows 2, 9 and 16 have M indicators. So, those rows should get all the M indicators with commas in between.

Can you please let me know whether there is any way to achieve this in SAS?

Re: Custom transpose

I would just create a new variable, using the anyalpha function, and include that with your other by variable. e.g.,

 

data need;
  set have;
  char=anyalpha(column3)>0;
run;
