How do I print values between two particular integers using Do while loop

Hi,

 

I am new to SAS programming. I am finding way to solve the following problem. 

The existing programming prints 2 to 15 levels output. If I would like to print only the levels between a particular value (say 8) and 15, how do I achieve it using do or do-while loops.

Current sample output:

 

x_2 = x_1+(((1)/15)*y;
x_3 =x_1+(((2)/15)*y);
.
.

.
x_15 = x_1+(((14)/15)*y);

Here's one way:

 

proc format;

value blanks  low-<5, 8 <- high = ' ';

run;

 

proc print data=have;

var x_2 - x_15;

format x_2 - x_15 blanks.;

run;

Hi Astounding,

 

Thanks for your reply. So does that mean that if I specify level 8, it would print only X_9 to X_15? Also, can't it be done using loops? say a do or do-while loop. I am trying to understand the solution you gave. 

 

Thanks,

Re: How do I print values between two particular integers using Do while loop

This solution prints all the variables, using PROC PRINT.  For any value that is out of range, it prints a blank instead of the actual value.

 

If you don't want to see even those blanks, it takes more complex programming and results in uglier output.  But it can easily be done if that is a better outcome.

Which is why we suggest providing example input and output.
