Splitting in decile dataset depending on numeric variable's value for each char varaible's value

Hi;

 

I have a dataset with a variable "ID" (char) and a variable "Price" (num) and some others variables.

I need split the dataset in 10 deciles (10% of observations in each) FOR EACH ID'S VALUE depending on price's values for after to can choose the highest 10% price's value for each ID'S value.

 

For the differents ID's values there is not the same number of observations.

 

I tried with PROC RANK but i get deciles for all the dataset (not depending of each ID's value).

 

It should be relatively easy to do it but I am a new SAS user and I can not do it.

 

Do you have any idea ?

 

Thank you!

Please post some sample data and the PROC RANK code you used. You might be missing by variable in PROC RANK.

Try 1) sorting the data set by your ID variable

      2) add a BY Id; statement to proc rank
