By just quick looking at your sample data, it makes little sense. Perhaps you could use more realistic names/values? And tell us why you wish to do this...

Thanks for your response.

I have a real time scenario where if there are 100 rows and there will be a final row which is the sum of 100 rows , so total there will be 101 rows. I have to print 10 rows for each page + the sum row.The 11 th row is the sum of all 100 rows and nothing to do with the 10 rows. So it will be like 11 rows for 10 pages. Hope it is clear. Please let em know if you need more information w.r.t this

This sounds more like something for Proc Report than a data set issue. Data sets do not have pages but proc report has tools to break printed output at changes is the value of a grouping variable, to the sums (and other statistics) with in the group and then provide an overal summary at the end.

This should do the trick for you:

**data** test;

input x$ a b c;

cards;

A 1 2 3

B 4 5 6

C 7 8 9

D 1 2 6

E 3 7 9

Total 10 20 30

;

**run**;

**data** last;

set test end=end;

if end then output;

**run**;

**data** final(drop=lastx lasta lastb lastc);

set test end=end;

if _n_=**1** then set last(rename=(x=lastx a=lasta b=lastb c=lastc));

if mod(_n_,**2**)=**0** then do;

output;

x=lastx;

a=lasta;

b=lastb;

c=lastc;

end;

if not end then output;

**run**;
