## Re: Newbie question: create temp Freq distribution table

That is not what dataset would generally look like. A data set consists of variables and values,

So it might be:

Old   New

1      0

1      0

1      1

1      1

0      1

What type of operation are you going to do with the resulting data set?

## Re: Newbie question: create temp Freq distribution table

Are you saying that currently you have a text document that you need to create data from?

I would expect 'Good' and 'Bad' to be LEVELS of the Variables Old and New (or OldClaim and NewClaim) or such.

Can you provide a few rows of what you might want this to actually look like.

Here's a guess of one way:

``````
data want;
do i=1 to 243;
old= 0;
new= 0;
output;
end;
do i=1 to 49;
old= 0;
new= 1;
output;
end;
do i=1 to 71;
old= 1;
new= 0;
output;
end;
do i=1 to 40;
old= 1;
new= 1;
output;
end;
drop i;
run;

``````
