I am new to EG. When I run the EG code formating procedure, SAS indents the if statement to a seperate line. For example:
I want this:
if x=0 then y=1; else
x >0 then y=2; else
x<0 then y=3;
What I get is something like:
if x=0 then
x >0 then

Could it have something to do with the code being incorrect?
What is with the extra THEN keywords?
I assume you meant something like this.
if x=0 then y=1; else if x>0 then y=2; else if x<0 then y=3;
Personally I would not use your style becuase it is placing key information (the ELSE keyword) at the end of the line instead of the beginning of the line. This makes it very difficult to quickly scan the code. The beginning of the lines will be alligned, but the ends of the lines will be ragged.
