Im trying to create a new data set from an old one only using specific variables. 

 

data confsemi;
 set nba1996_krcadin2_new;
 if tmID NE 'SEA' or 'HOU' then delete;
run;

 

However when i get my results only SEA shows up. In the log it claims that 'HOU' is a numeric value and therefore ignores it. Any suggestions??

This is not correct syntax:

 

 if tmID NE 'SEA' or 'HOU' then delete;

SAS see's the following instead:

 

 if (tmID NE 'SEA') or 'HOU' then delete;

Use IN

 

 if tmID not in ('SEA', 'HOU') then delete;
