Hello.  I'm new to SAS.  I have a seemingly easy question but none of the conventional "create new variables" rules

seem to apply directly.  Details below.  I created a mini dataset to illustrate.  Thank you! Anissa

 

 

First column has different types of tests - text format.  Second column has results - numeric.  

 

I want a third column with numeric value from column two, but only when column 1 is Test2.

 

 

OUTCOME NAMERESULTNew Variable with TEST 2 only?
   
TEST14.
TEST211
TEST32.
TEST23.
TEST422

data want;
set have;
if upcase(outcome_name) = 'TEST2' then newvar=result;
run;
