I'm just getting started and it's very simple code in SAS University. What am I doing wrong?? I get the following message when I run my if-then statement: ERROR 180-322: Statement is not valid or it is used out of proper order.
*libnames point to the folder that contains the datasets, not the individual datasets; libname malawi '/folders/myfolders/'; *malawi is the name of the folders and mwfemale_pubuse is the name of the dataset; proc contents data=malawi.mwfemale_pubuse; *Age groups 13-17 and 18-24; if 13 <= q2 <= 18 then agegroup= 1; if 18 <= q2 <=24 then agegroup= 2;
Always end your PROC/DATA STEP with a RUN (or quit).
When creating new variables you need to explicitly tell SAS both what data set you're working with and what you're trying to create. This occurs within a DATA STEP.
code to do stuff goes here - like if/then;
I believe theres a free ecourse available as well as numerous videos here
