Not sure what the problem is here. Someone please advise. Numeric variable 50501 definitely exists in the data set. As does Combo, a character variable.
proc boxplot data=nicholas._21603_;
plot '50501'n * Combo /
ERROR 22-322: Syntax error, expecting one of the following: a name, (.
ERROR 200-322: The symbol is not recognized and will be ignored.

Yep. Turns out renaming '50501'n to v50501 allowed the box plots.
I'd call that a bug. Only time so far when a proc failed to recognize '50501'n as a legitimate variable. Every other proc handled it as it was supposed to.
