ERROR: Expression using subtraction (-) requires numeric types.

When inputting the underlined code below (towards the end), I get this error, any clues on what needs to be changed to take care of this?

 

Thank you

Can you check whether OIV.PERIOD and RIV.PERIOD are actually defined as numeric?  SAS won't perform math on characters.
