Re: how to create a variable in data step

Hi:
There are several different ways to create a new variable in a datastep. Partly the method you choose will depend on the incoming dataset or flat file or whether you are creating test data "from scratch".

Reading the documentation on DATA step and programming concepts will help.

Also looking for user group papers, such as these, may prove instructive:
