Hi,

 

Is there any way to have a default value for a PROC SQL NOPRINT if no matching row is found?

 

Thanks

I would say the easiest is to add

 

%let p_rate=1;

just before the proc sql. If a value is selected in the SQL then it wll overwrite the value assigned with the %let.

Erm, the NOPRINT option stops SQL printing things to the log when there is just a select clause.  What exactly are you after, do you mean stop the procedure results, that is pretty default for all procedures?

Thanks for the answer RW9

 

PROC SQL NOPRINT;
SELECT arn INTO: p_rate FROM rates WHERE MONTH(date) = MONTH("&chosendate."d);
QUIT;
RUN;

I am doing something like this. I use p_rate in the following like a calculation parameter.

If there is no matching rows, I would like p_rate to be equals to 1 by default...like this the rate won't have impact on the calculation.
