Hi, I'm running into a problem I've never seen before. I'm trying to sort a character variable that has a unique identifier, after the data is sorted, the data within the variable goes missing. Any insight as to why?
proc sort data=work.data; by uniqueID_char; run;
I've verified that the data exists before the proc sort command, so I'm not sure why its deleting it.
Thanks for the suggestion. My data set is 110M, I didn't think it was possible for it to be missing 800K, but it appears it is.
