I need to compare two datasets A & B
A has a variable action_comments =length 8000 character variable
B has variable action_commebts=length 8000 character variable
While doing proc compare something gets wrong with the variable even though
The data is same in both.
Can anyone tell me help me getting wrong?
The COMPARE report will tell you the row number where the difference appears. Inspect the datasets manually in these locations.
If your PROC COMPARE does not include a BY or ID statement then SAS does a row-for-row comparison - row 1 with row 1, row 2 with row 2 etc. If your compare datasets contain identical data and the same number of rows, then check to see if your rows are in the same order or not. COMPARE could simply be reporting that the datasets do not have the same row order.
