I want to delete the 44 first rows in sas database. I find how to delete a point (delete point ), but I want to delete all rows from 1 to 44.

Thanks

you can use firstobs option to control the observations you wish to keep in the dataset

data want;

  set have(firstobs=45);

run;

this will keep only observations starting from 45 to remaining and the first 44 obs will not be there in want;

If you don't have any particular meta data in the table (such as indexes, constraints etc) you could rewrite the table using data - set (firstobs=).
