Point = error


I have some code which I will post on here and sometimes I get an error when running it, then other times I don't. If I run the proc sql alone and then the data step alone, I get the error. If I run them together it will work sometimes. If I start off running them together it will error so I then revert to separate and it works. I have multiple data steps that have a point = and once I get the first to run, the others that remain never error. It is just the first time I open my program this happens. Not sure why. The error is:

 

ERROR: The POINT= data set option is not valid for the data set CARDIAC.TINRESTUDY, the data set

must be accessible by observation number for POINT= processing.

My code:

PROC SQL;*restudy tin;

CREATE TABLE cardiac.tinrestudy AS

(SELECT DISTINCT mbr_sys_id, fst_srvc_dt, prov_tin, prov_tin_pci, prov_tin_cath, prov_tin_ct,

prov_tin_secho, prov_tin_tee, prov_tin_tte, prov_tin_perf, prov_tin_pet, prov_tin_cabg,

office_clinic, inpatient_facility, outpatient_facility,

prov_tin_maj_restudy, prov_tin_min_restudy, prov_tin_fu_30, prov_tin_fu_182

FROM cardiac.final11b

WHERE MBR_SYS_ID IN

(SELECT DISTINCT MBR_SYS_ID FROM cardiac.final11b

where nat_pci>. and

fst_srvc_dt>. )

and fst_srvc_dt >. and prov_tin > ('000000000'));

run;

options  compress=NO reuse=yes;

data cardiac.tinmaj;*maj restudies;

set cardiac.tinrestudy nobs=last_obs;

by mbr_sys_id ;

if prov_tin_pci=1  then do;

wb = fst_srvc_dt + 1;

we = fst_srvc_dt + 90;

do pt = _N_ + 1 to last_obs;

point=pt;

Re: Point = error

Try moving the COMPRESS=NO system option before the SQL procedure or use cardiac.tinrestudy(POINTOBS=YES) when creating that dataset.
