Re: expecting an error

The right sql syntax uses ON for join conditions and WHERE for data selection.

The error message tells you: ERROR 73-322: Expecting an ON

proc sql;
create table new3 as
select * from a as x right join b as y
on  x.id=y.id;
quit;

Re: expecting an error

You've specified a RIGHT JOIN so you need ON instead of WHERE, which the error is trying to tell you.

 

ERROR 73-322: Expecting an ON.

 

Replace WHERE with ON and see if that works.
