SAS Comment

Hello,

I am trying to comment out a line within an IF statement but keep getting erros on the comment. Does anyone have any suggestion?

Thank you for any input !

IF USES IN ('0005','0019',
'0030','0006','0031')
* '0021','0030','0006','0031') ;
THEN AREA = 'A&S ';
N/A

Yes, that type of comment is considered as a statement. You need to block comment it like so:

IF USES IN ('0005','0019',
'0030','0006','0031')
/* '0021','0030','0006','0031') */
THEN AREA = 'A&S ';
