Hi there my SAS friends:

I have this table, is an experiment os repeated measures in humans, each human with diferent ages and weights (as response variabel). Here you can see the original table:

Person | Age1 | weight_1 | Age2 | weight_2 | Age3 | weight_3 |

1 | 1672 | 61 | 1714 | 65.4 | 1775 | 51 |

2 | 1671 | 45 | 1713 | 49.2 | 1774 | 46 |

3 | 1670 | 55 | 1712 | 59.4 | 1773 | 44 |

4 | 1670 | 47.2 | 1712 | 50 | 1773 | 42.2 |

5 | 1669 | 50 | 1711 | . | 1772 | 46.1 |

6 | 1668 | 46.2 | 1710 | 50.4 | 1771 | 43.3 |

7 | 1668 | 47 | 1710 | 51 | 1771 | 43 |

8 | 2153 | 48 | 2195 | 54.2 | 2256 | 48.2 |

9 | 2152 | 51 | 2194 | 54 | 2255 | 47 |

10 | 2151 | 56.1 | 2193 | 63.4 | 2254 | 50.1 |

**Now, the question is:**

**HOW CAN I OBTAIN A TABLE LIKE THIS, USINS SAS???**

Person | AGE | Age_in_Days | Weight | Weigh_in_grams |

1 | Age1 | 1672 | weight_1 | 61 |

1 | Age2 | 1714 | weight_2 | 65.4 |

1 | Age3 | 1775 | weight_3 | 51 |

2 | Age1 | 1671 | weight_1 | 45 |

2 | Age2 | 1713 | weight_2 | 49.2 |

2 | Age3 | 1774 | weight_3 | 46 |

3 | Age1 | 1670 | weight_1 | 55 |

3 | Age2 | 1712 | weight_2 | 59.4 |

3 | Age3 | 1773 | weight_3 | 44 |

4 | Age1 | 1670 | weight_1 | 47.2 |

4 | Age2 | 1712 | weight_2 | 50 |

4 | Age3 | 1773 | weight_3 | 42.2 |

5 | Age1 | 1669 | weight_1 | 50 |

5 | Age2 | 1711 | weight_2 | 0 |

5 | Age3 | 1772 | weight_3 | 46.1 |

6 | Age1 | 1668 | weight_1 | 46.2 |

6 | Age2 | 1710 | weight_2 | 50.4 |

6 | Age3 | 1771 | weight_3 | 43.3 |

7 | Age1 | 1668 | weight_1 | 47 |

7 | Age2 | 1710 | weight_2 | 51 |

7 | Age3 | 1771 | weight_3 | 43 |

8 | Age1 | 2153 | weight_1 | 48 |

8 | Age2 | 2195 | weight_2 | 54.2 |

8 | Age3 | 2256 | weight_3 | 48.2 |

9 | Age1 | 2152 | weight_1 | 51 |

9 | Age2 | 2194 | weight_2 | 54 |

9 | Age3 | 2255 | weight_3 | 47 |

10 | Age1 | 2151 | weight_1 | 56.1 |

10 | Age2 | 2193 | weight_2 | 63.4 |

10 | Age3 | 2254 | weight_3 | 50.1 |

As you can note, is an special transpose that i'm trying to solve but unhappily i coudlnt make it.

Thanks for your colaboration my SAS friends.

Just build on @Reeza's code:

```
data want;
set have;
array _age{*} initial_age age1-age3;
array _wgt{*} initial_weight weight1-weight3;
do i=1 to dim(_age);
age = vname(_age{i});
age_in_days = _age{i};
weight = vname(_wgt{i});
weight_in_grams = _wgt{i};
output;
end;
drop i initial_age age1-age3 initial_weight weight1-weight3;
run;
```

This is a Wide to Long Transpose, I prefer the array method to proc transpose in this case, as it's easier and a single step.

http://www.ats.ucla.edu/stat/sas/modules/widetolong_data.htm

```
data want;
set have;
array _age(3) age1-age3;
array _wgt(3) weight1-weight3;
do i=1 to 3;
age=_age(i);
weight=_wgt(i);
Obs=i;
output;
end;
drop i age1-age3 weight1-weight3;
run;
```

The Initial_age and the Initial_weight:

Person | AGE | Age_in_Days | Weight | Weigh_in_grams |

1 | Initial_age | 653 | Initial_weight | 30 |

1 | Age1 | 1672 | weight_1 | 61 |

1 | Age2 | 1714 | weight_2 | 65.4 |

1 | Age3 | 1775 | weight_3 | 51 |

2 | Initial_age | 1327 | Initial_weight | 32 |

2 | Age1 | 1671 | weight_1 | 45 |

2 | Age2 | 1713 | weight_2 | 49.2 |

2 | Age3 | 1774 | weight_3 | 46 |

3 | Initial_age | 1123 | Initial_weight | 30 |

3 | Age1 | 1670 | weight_1 | 55 |

3 | Age2 | 1712 | weight_2 | 59.4 |

3 | Age3 | 1773 | weight_3 | 44 |

4 | Initial_age | 1254 | Initial_weight | 33 |

4 | Age1 | 1670 | weight_1 | 47.2 |

4 | Age2 | 1712 | weight_2 | 50 |

4 | Age3 | 1773 | weight_3 | 42.2 |

5 | Initial_age | 1463 | Initial_weight | 45 |

5 | Age1 | 1669 | weight_1 | 50 |

5 | Age2 | 1711 | weight_2 | 0 |

5 | Age3 | 1772 | weight_3 | 46.1 |

6 | Initial_age | 1000 | Initial_weight | 30 |

6 | Age1 | 1668 | weight_1 | 46.2 |

6 | Age2 | 1710 | weight_2 | 50.4 |

6 | Age3 | 1771 | weight_3 | 43.3 |

7 | Initial_age | 1133 | Initial_weight | 12 |

7 | Age1 | 1668 | weight_1 | 47 |

7 | Age2 | 1710 | weight_2 | 51 |

7 | Age3 | 1771 | weight_3 | 43 |

8 | Initial_age | 1000 | Initial_weight | 30 |

8 | Age1 | 2153 | weight_1 | 48 |

8 | Age2 | 2195 | weight_2 | 54.2 |

8 | Age3 | 2256 | weight_3 | 48.2 |

9 | Initial_age | 1000 | Initial_weight | 34 |

9 | Age1 | 2152 | weight_1 | 51 |

9 | Age2 | 2194 | weight_2 | 54 |

9 | Age3 | 2255 | weight_3 | 47 |

10 | Initial_age | 1243 | Initial_weight | 26 |

10 | Age1 | 2151 | weight_1 | 56.1 |

10 | Age2 | 2193 | weight_2 | 63.4 |

10 | Age3 | 2254 | weight_3 | 50.1 |

In this case, how could i make the programation.

Thank you very much
