Hello,

 

I have a data set which I've given values in a column called priority.  How can I dedup so that I keep those with the lowest value for priority?  For example below, I would want to keep the value where priority = 1 and delete any other priorities.

Thanks,

In a data step:

 

Data want;

    set have;

    where priority=1;

run;

 

will keep only records with the stated priority value. If the value is character then it would have the value inside quote marks.
