Hi,

In my data, I have multiple rows for one person and I'd like to combine all the rows into one unique row while summing the values. For example:

Where year_id and bat_id are equal, I would like to combine the rows and sum the column values. So for 2015, I would just want one row with values:

82 for G, 232 for AB, and so one. What procedure is best able to do this, or could it be done in the data step?

Thank you,

Justin

you could try the proc means

```
data have;
input year_id bat_id$ g ab r h _2b;
cards;
2015 almoa001 51 178 30 47 9
2015 almoa001 31 54 6 11 3
2014 almoa001 32 98 9 26 5
2014 almoa001 27 106 10 21 5
;
proc means data=have nway;
class year_id bat_id;
var g ab r h _2b;
output out=sums sum=/autoname;
run;
```

Thanks,

Jag

alternatively proc sql

```
proc sql;
create table want as select year_id, bat_id,sum(g) as g, sum(ab) as ab, sum(r) as r, sum(h) as h, sum(_2b) as _2b
from have group by year_id,bat_id;
quit;
```

Thanks,

If you use @Jagadishkatam's Proc Means solution with Sum= instead of Sum= / autoname then the variable names would stay unchanged if that would be the preferred behavior.
