# How to view whole dataset after applying Where or If statement

Hello,

I want to know if I give any conditional arithmetic expression then can I view whole datasets?

Example - if I have List of employees with Department and Salary and I have to calculate incentives for specific department but I want to view whole data set and not only those specific employees.

Do not apply a where or subsetting if statement if you want the other records. You would conditionally assign values.

data want;

set have;

if department = 'SALES' then incentive = salary* 0.1;

run;

would only add an incentive for the specific department. All the other records would have missing values for incentive.

WHERE or subsetting IF removes those records. Instead of WHERE/IF consider creating a flagged variable to identify the records instead.
