getting the max value

x

I have the following Dataset  as below with the followin variables Subject (character), rtue1, valurt, tylue3, vB4.......n (numeric). there is no variable patern. it can have any name or any number of varaibles.
might need to write a macro.


Subject rtue1     valurt tylue3   vB4
------- ------    ------ ------  ------
10001     3        4       5       8
10007     4        6       4       9
10009     4        9      10       3


I need a folwwoing dataset as below which contains the maximum values for
Value1,value2,value3,value4.
The result dataset should be as below:


Subject     Value  
-------     -----
10001         8     
10007         9    
10009        10

Thanks a lot.

Re: getting the max value

Why did you repost this as a new question? You already have your answer! Here was my suggestion:

data want (drop=rtue1--vB4);

  set have;

  value=max(of rtue1--vB4);

run;

Re: getting the max value

Sorry I realized my question was incomplete and more to do with macro than the process. I have reposted it again in Process forum
