Re: Proc transpose

proc transpose data=have out=want name=variable ;

  by id time ;

  var x1 x2 ;

run;

You might want to add a proc sort if you want the data in the order in your example.

Re: Proc transpose

Hi, solution below, I saw no need to transpose.

data x1set;

set mydata;

drop x2;

run;

data x2set;

set mydata;

drop x1;

run;

data newdata;

set x1set x2set;

run;

Re: Proc transpose

But it's not what the OP wants.  Plus you don't need to crete x1set and x2set.  But you do need to rename and create VARIABLE.

Re: Proc transpose

Thank you all for quick reply, Tom's suggestion works fine with small example and I think it will do well with proc sort and larger data aswell. Thanks!
