How can I duplicate the records by many times (Control by a variable)?

Dear all,

How can I duplicate the records?

For example:

DATA TEST;
INFILE CARDS MISSOVER;
INPUT @1 ID4. @8 Factor 2. @13INVENCST COMMA10.2;
CARDS;
0001 2 45,000.00
0002 5 28,000.00
;
RUN;

If the first record of factor is 2. How can I duplicate the record by 2 times?

Finally, I want the results as following:

0001 20 45,000.00
0001 20 45,000.00
0001 10 28,000.00
0002 10 28,000.00
0002 10 28,000.00
0002 10 28,000.00
0002 10 28,000.00


Thanks all

You have the SAS OUTPUT statement which can be used in a DATA step for this purpose, as required. Without explicit coding of the OUTPUT in your example, only one SAS observation is generated. You can define a code paragraph using the construct below (coded within a DATA step):

DO I=1 TO ;
OUTPUT;
END;
