Hi, I have a dataset that has a variable with the name Fees which represents a changed in Fees that were paid. I would like to be able count the number of entries that are not zero ($0.00) and not empty cells using the Case When Statement. Is this even possible using the Case When Statement or is there a more efficient way to achieve this. Thanks in advance.

The simplest way to count the number of positive fees in a datastep is the sum statement:
countPos + (Fees > 0);
within a SQL query, you would use:
sum(Fees > 0) as countPos,
Note The comparison (Fees > 0) has value 1 for positive fees and zero for nul or missing fees.
