## Re: else if

Nothings wrong, it runs without error.

Why do you think something is wrong?

So if something unexpected is happening you need to explain what you expect and what isn't happening. Given what you've provided I have no idea what you want.

1    Data Mite;
2    Input obs  time;
3    Cards;

NOTE: The data set WORK.MITE has 4 observations and 2 variables.
NOTE: DATA statement used (Total process time):
real time           0.18 seconds
cpu time            0.01 seconds

8    ;
9    Run;

10   data MItest;
11   set MIte;
12   if obs=0 then ttime=.; else ttime=time;
13   run;

NOTE: There were 4 observations read from the data set WORK.MITE.
NOTE: The data set WORK.MITEST has 4 observations and 3 variables.
NOTE: DATA statement used (Total process time):
real time           0.00 seconds
cpu time            0.00 seconds

## Re: else if

Sounds like you had an ERROR. Show the error from the Log and the code submitted that generated the error.

If you had posted something like

ERROR: You cannot open USER.JUNK.DATA for output access with member-level control because

USER.JUNK.DATA is in use by you in resource environment ViewTable Window.

we could likely have told you that you had the set or an explorer window about the contents open.
