You don't have a variable called word.

 

Did you mean to use: model bweight = Momeduc; ?

That worked. Another question will this code test whether the mean birth weight is the same for all levels of the mother’s education?

Make sure your dataset has the correct number of records.

That's data, not code.

You have a data set named WORD, not a variable. 

Look at your import statement, you didn't import a variable named WORD so SAS can't find it. The MODEL statement should have the dependent variable on the left hand side of the = sign.

 

In the future include your log in your post when you encounter an error.
