Hi All,

 

I am struggling to create new FROM and VALID to dates from yearly snapshots. I need to create the dates based on change in HEIGHT. I have posted a IN and OUT data. Please see if you could help. Need to create the out data.

 

data in;

informat id 1. valid_from MMDDYY10. valid_to MMDDYY10. height 8.;

input id valid_from valid_to height;

format valid_from date9. valid_to date9.;

cards;

1 01/01/2010 01/01/2011 3

1 01/01/2011 01/01/2012 4

1 01/01/2012 01/01/2013 4

1 01/01/2013 01/01/2014 4

1 01/01/2014 01/01/2015 13

1 01/01/2015 01/01/2016 3

2 01/01/2011 01/01/2012 20

2 01/01/2012 01/01/2013 20

2 01/01/2013 01/01/2014 21

;

run;

 

data out;

informat id 1. valid_from MMDDYY10. valid_to MMDDYY10. height 8.;

input id valid_from valid_to height;

format valid_from date9. valid_to date9.;

cards;

1 01/01/2010 01/01/2011 3

1 01/01/2011 01/01/2014 4

1 01/01/2014 01/01/2015 13

1 01/01/2015 01/01/2016 3

2 01/01/2011 01/01/2013 20

 Edited: I missed to read your question properly. Well, in any case when Xia keshan answers, one can blindly copy the genius. My apologies!

Thanks for replying. Yes it didn't take into account changing the from data in row 2 to 2011 - except that it works fine.

 

I had totally forgotton about the notsorted option...that was the missing like for me. Thanks
