Let's say N=8 and M= 6. If the number of non-missing values within a rolling window is fewer than 6, the program should set the output value to be missing. Not sure if the following does this:

proc expand data = have out = want method = none;
	by firm;
	id date;
	convert x = y/ transformout = (movsum 8 trimleft 5);
run;

I'm not entirely sure here, but I don't think Proc Expand has such an option. 

 

Do you want an alternative to Proc Expand?

Thanks for confirming that proc expand cannot do this. There are definitely (less elegant) solutions.
