Hi everybody,

Newby on the forum and with sas, I would like to do a regression for exemple :

model car_solded = earn population

After I would like plot the results and residues on the same graph but depending on time. But I have the problem below:

ERROR: A variable was specified in the PLOT statement which is not specified in a VAR or

MODEL statement

The complete example is below:

proc reg data=data.data_used;

title 'regression lineaire';

model car_solded = earn population /r p;

plot r.*Time;

run;

Could someone helping me.

Thanks a lot

The documentation for PROC REG says

*VAR*

lists variables for which crossproducts are to be computed, variables that can be interactively added to the model, or variables to be used in scatter plots.

So you probably need a VAR statement here (as the ERROR message suggests BTW.)

As an aside: why can't these error messages say which variable? Should be pretty much known ...
