ERROR: The following columns were not found in the contributing tables

[ Edited ]

I am using SAS EG to create and reformat a time variable, but it gave me this error "ERROR: The following columns were not found in the contributing tables: time_v2."

 

PROC SQL;
CREATE TABLE WORK.COOL_DATA_02 AS
SELECT t1.id,

/* time_v2, to correct typo */
(CASE
WHEN t1.id=3177 and t1.hospital_id=7 and t1.site_id=210
THEN "15:14"
ELSE t1.time
END) LABEL="Age_formatted" AS time_v2,

/* time_v3, to correct format */
(INPUT(time_v2, TIME5.)) AS time_v3

FROM WORK.COOL_DATA_01 t1;
QUIT;

Re: ERROR: The following columns were not found in the contributing tables

If the field is being calculated in the same query you need to use the key word CALCULATED before it.

 

PROC SQL;
CREATE TABLE WORK.COOL_DATA_02 AS
SELECT t1.id,
/* time_v2, to correct typo */
(CASE
WHEN t1.id=3177 and t1.hospital_id=7 and t1.site_id=210
THEN "15:14"
ELSE t1.time
END) LABEL="Age_formatted" AS time_v2,
/* time_v3, to correct format */
(INPUT(CALCULATED time_v2, TIME5.)) AS time_v3
FROM WORK.COOL_DATA_01 t1;
QUIT;
