Calculate mean

Hello All,

 

I am trying to get adjusted GPA but SAS keeps giving me an errror. I got the student GPA = 3.18 so I put:

 

PROC MEANS DATA= STUDENTS MEAN;
VAR GPA;
RUN;

 

DATA ADJ GPA;
SET STUDENTS;
ADJ GPA = STUDENT MEAN - GPA;
RUN;

 

I keep getting statement is not valid, can you help??

 

Thanks!

Re: Calculate mean

You need to use valid SAS names for variables and datasets. Valid SAS names contain only letters, digits and underlines, and start with either a letter or underline. No blanks.

In the fiuture, when you get an ERROR you have no clue about, post the log.
