We need quite some more info to help you out.
If it's in a standard file layout, take a look at PROC IMPORT.
Use a data step or SQL to subset your data.
If you are preparing a scheduled job, you might want to consider other options to optimize it.

You need to give us some representative sample data and then tell us how the result should look like.
Is this using SAS DI Studio (which version?) or coding?
With coding it could look like below pseudo code:
input var @;
if var ne 'certain value' then return;
input b c d;
