# ERROR 22-322:

Hi

I get an error

ERROR 22-322: Syntax error, expecting one of the following: a name, -, :, ;, _ALL_, _CHARACTER_,

_CHAR_, _NUMERIC_.

ERROR 76-322: Syntax error, statement will be ignored.

The code that gets the error is this one, basicall V7400...V74505 are numerical values and I want to test if the sum is not egal to V7440 (also numerical). What I am missing?

IF SUM(V7400,V7401,V7402,V7403,(-1)*V7500,(-1)*V7501,(-1)*V7502,(-1)*V7503,(-1)*V7504,(-1)*V7505) ^= SUM(V7440) then do ;

I guess I found the problem

It was a DROP that was creating problems before....

Hi,

Are you sure that the error is in that line? I have written the code and works fine for me

``````data test;
format V7400-V7403 V7500-V7505 V7440  best12.;
V7400=1;
V7401=1;
V7402=1;
V7403=1;
V7500=-1;
V7501=-1;
V7502=-1;
V7503=-1;
V7504=-1;
V7505=1;
V7440=7;
IF SUM(V7400,V7401,V7402,V7403,(-1)*V7500,(-1)*V7501,(-1)*V7502,(-1)*V7503,(-1)*V7504,(-1)*V7505) ^= SUM(V7440) then do ;
put "IT WORKS";
end;
run;``````

Since the V7440 ne 8, IT WORKS is printted in the log.
