Proc SurveySelect

I'm using Proc SurveySelect to select samples from a population. I want to select 1,300 samples with replacement. I also have four categories and I want to weight the categories so that more samples are selected from category 1 than category 4. I've selected the PPS_WR method and created a variable that contains the category weights.

But I have one other criteria and I can't seem to find an option for it. Although I want to sample with replacement, I don't want any individual selected more than 4 times. In essence, I want a ceiling placed on the sampling with replacement. I'm already using the SIZE statement to specify the weight for each category.

Any suggestions?
