Name should occupy the positions 6 to 24. Add spaces.

 

data weight_club;
input IdNumber 1-4 Name $ 6-24 Team $ StartWeight EndWeight;
Loss=StartWeight-EndWeight;
datalines;
1023 David Shaw         red 189 165
1049 Amelia Serrano     yellow 145 124
1219 Alan Nance         red 210 192

The data is not read properly with the code you provided, because you mentioned column 6-24 to read the Name, but actually if you see 6-24 columns data it takes the values other then name.

 

 

data weight_club;

input IdNumber 1-4 Name $ & 20. Team $ StartWeight EndWeight;

Loss=StartWeight-EndWeight;

datalines;

1023 David Shaw red 189 165

1049 Amelia Serrano yellow 145 124

1219 Alan Nance red 210 192

1246 Ravi Sinha yellow 194 177

1078 Ashley McKnight red 127 118

run;  

 

Make sure the space between the data is two blanks other then between names. i.e space between 1023 and David is two blanks and space between David and shaw is one blank only. "&" here is used to treat the name seperated by single blank as one whole name.

Thanks,
