Hello Everyone,

I have a data of a 3 set of variable a1-a3 b1-b3 c1-c3.

For a1-a3, I want to calculate a ratio of value*2.0/lag(value)

For b1-b3, I want to calculate a ratio of value*1.0/lag(value)

For c1-c3, I want to calculate a ratio of value*0.5/lag(value)

I don't know how to set condition based on variable name.

Any help is very much appreciated.

Thank you,

HHC

Hi Scott,

My output should look like:

1 1 2 3 11 12 13 111 112 113

2 5 6 7 55 56 57 555 556 557

3 0.4 0.66

Essentially, there will be another row added to the file, and this row report the ratio.

Thank you,

HHC

Do you have more than 2 rows of data? Is the same ratio to be calculated between each pair of input rows? Would row 4 in output be the 3rd input row and row 5 the ratio of 2nd and 3rd input rows or rows 4 and 5 be input rows 3 and 4 with output row 6 the ratio?
