selecting data between dates

Hi,

I am trying to do a couple of things

  1. exclude certain firms (identified by the variable sicid)
  2. select transactions between certain dates

I would like to exclude firms with the SICID between 4900 - 4999 & 6000-6999 i.e. include all other firms

I would only like to include transaction data between 01jan1986 and 31Dec2003

I'm not sure whether I should use if or where statements?

Anyhelp appreciated

You have not provided any sample data and sample output. However from your question it seems the following codes would help.

Data want;

set have;

where '01jan1986'd le date '31Dec2003'd;

if  4900 le SICID le  4999 or 6000 le SICID le 6999 then delete;

run;
