# Want to correct the the data and aligned in one row

I have a data set given below:

data have;

input x y z a b c;

datalines;

1 2 3 4 . .

5 8 9 1 2 3

1 4 7 8 5 6

4 5 6 7 8 9

.  .  .  . 5 6

run;

The two values of first row is showing in the last row and four values of first row are missing in the last row.

I want correct missing values  in one row either first or last and remove the duplicate.

output like below.

x y z a b c

1 2 3 4 5 6. .

5 8 9 1 2 3

1 4 7 8 5 6

4 5 6 7 8 9

## Re: Want to correct the the data and aligned in one row

How do you know that you need to use first/last row to fix missing? Is it a single manual process?

if last then do;

if b2=. then b2=b;

if c2=. then c2=c;

output;

end;

keep  x1 y2 z2 a2 b2 c2;

run;

data want2;

set have;

if _n_=1 then set want;

array arrayname(*) x y z a b c;

array arrayname2(*) x1 y2 z2 a2 b2 c2;

do i=1 to dim(arrayname);

if arrayname(i)=. then arrayname(i)=arrayname2(i);

end;

keep  x y z a b c;

run;

Is this what you want?

## Re: Want to correct the the data and aligned in one row

How do you know what's correct? Why isn't the missing filled in by the second row, why the last?

And why is the last filled in by the first? Or is it because they're missing opposite variables? Is there an ID variable to identify these rows?

If the business logic is simply for these two rows then do it manually

data have;

input x y z a b c;

datalines;

1 2 3 4 . .

5 8 9 1 2 3

1 4 7 8 5 6

4 5 6 7 8 9

.  .  .  . 5 6

;

run;

data want;

set have end=last;

if _n_=1 then do;

b=5; c=6;

end;

if not last then output;

run;

data want;

set have;

count=0;

array v _numeric_;

do over v;

if v=. then count+1;

end;

if count>0 then n=1;

else n=_n_;

run;

proc sql;

create table final as

select sum(x) as x,sum(y) as y, sum(z) as z, sum(a) as a,sum(b) as b, sum(c) as c

from want

group by n;

quit;

if _n_ eq 1 then do;
set have(rename=(x=_x y=_y z=_z a=_a b=_b c=_c)) nobs=nobs point=nobs;
x=coalesce(x,_x);
y=coalesce(y,_y);
