Hello:

 

Could someone help me to simply the codes below? Maybe macro or array? or something else?  Thanks.

 

 

data want;

set have;

Labelpos1=find(label," NOS","i");

Labelpos2=find(label,"NOS ","i");

Labelpos3=find(label,"-NOS","i");

Labelpos4=find(label,"NOS-","i");

Labelpos5=find(label,"MISC","i");

Componentpos1=find(Component," NOS","i");

Componentpos2=find(Component,"NOS ","i");

Componentpos3=find(Component,"-NOS","i");

Componentpos4=find(Component,"NOS-","i");

Componentpos5=find(Component,"MISC","i");

Productpos1=find(Product," NOS","i");

Productpos2=find(Product,"NOS ","i");

Productpos3=find(Product,"-NOS","i");

Productpos4=find(Product,"NOS-","i");

Productpos5=find(Product,"MISC","i");

run;

 

data nos;

set want;

where Labelpos1 ne 0 or Labelpos2 ne 0 or Labelpos3 ne 0 or Labelpos4 ne 0 or Labelpos5 ne 0

or Componentpos1 ne 0 or Componentpos2 ne 0 or Componentpos3 ne 0 or Componentpos4 ne 0 or Componentpos5 ne 0

or Productpos1 ne 0 or Productpos2 ne 0 or Productpos3 ne 0 or Productpos4 ne 0 or Productpos5 ne 0;

Or, if you don't need to keep each find location:

 

data have;
  informat label component product $4.;
  input label component product;
  cards;
this that none
this nos some
the same -nos
not not not
not not misc
;

data want;
  set have (where=(max(
      prxmatch('/NOS| NOS|-NOS|NOS-|MISC/i',label),
      prxmatch('/NOS| NOS|-NOS|NOS-|MISC/i',Component),
      prxmatch('/NOS| NOS|-NOS|NOS-|MISC/i',Product) ) gt 0));
run;

Hi Art297:

 

Your codes are wonderful.   But what is MAX used for?

I used max instead of OR. That is, if the largest resulting value from either of the three calls is greater than zero.
