Hi.
Op means a group variable.(i.e. need every group's first five observations).
I have two way, one is proc ,the other is data step;

[pre]
proc sort data=sashelp.class out=class;
by sex;
run;
ods select extremeobs;
proc univariate data=class nextrobs=5;
by sex;
var weight;
run;






proc sort data=sashelp.class out=class;
by sex descending weight;
run;
data temp;
set class;
by sex;
if first.sex then id=0;
id+1;
run;
data result;
set temp;
where id in (1 2 3 4 5);
run;
proc print;
run;

[/pre]

Just so that you will have one more choice take a look at the IDGROUP option on the OUTPUT statement in PROC MEANS/SUMMARY.
