I have a dataset named happy with only one variable.

It's like.

 

x

2019

New Year

Happy

Good

 

as x is the variable name, I want a new dataset with 2019 as the year variable, and New Year as the first line in x.

It would be like

 

x                          year

New Year            2019

Happy                2019

Good                  2019

 

What I did was:

 

data new;
set happy;
retain year;
if first.x then year=y;

run;

 

 

Why doesn't that work, and how would I make it work?
