Hi All,

while doing proc compare with two sas dataset, i got error with proc compare return code 3072. I tried to decrypt it to binary but not able to understand the exact reason and respective code. i tried from below pdf link.

http://support.sas.com/resources/papers/proceedings12/063-2012.pdf

http://support.sas.com/documentation/cdl/en/proc/61895/HTML/default/viewer.htm#a000146743.htm

Also the binary code of 3072 is 00110011 00110000 00110111 00110010

Please help me to provide the proper reason or to understand the logic behind this.

Regards,

Tushar J.

Hi All,

sorry guys it was my mistake, i was doing ascii to binary and not Decimal to binary. Return code always come in decimal. So if i convert my decimal value to binary then it is 110000000000. so 11th and 12th digit showing true that is value 1. so as per below table cause of my return code is

1) Base data set has variable not in comparison and 2) Comparison data set has variable not in base.

Bit | Condition | Code | Hex | Description |
---|---|---|---|---|

1 | DSLABEL | 1 | 0001X | Data set labels differ |

2 | DSTYPE | 2 | 0002X | Data set types differ |

3 | INFORMAT | 4 | 0004X | Variable has different informat |

4 | FORMAT | 8 | 0008X | Variable has different format |

5 | LENGTH | 16 | 0010X | Variable has different length |

6 | LABEL | 32 | 0020X | Variable has different label |

7 | BASEOBS | 64 | 0040X | Base data set has observation not in comparison |

8 | COMPOBS | 128 | 0080X | Comparison data set has observation not in base |

9 | BASEBY | 256 | 0100X | Base data set has BY group not in comparison |

10 | COMPBY | 512 | 0200X | Comparison data set has BY group not in base |

11 | BASEVAR | 1024 | 0400X | Base data set has variable not in comparison |

12 | COMPVAR | 2048 | 0800X | Comparison data set has variable not in base |

13 | VALUE | 4096 | 1000X | A value comparison was unequal |

14 | TYPE | 8192 | 2000X | Conflicting variable types |

15 | BYVAR | 16384 | 4000X | BY variables do not match |

16 | ERROR | 32768 | 8000X | Fatal error: comparison not done |
