No worries. See if you can use this as a template

 

Data have;
infile datalines dsd dlm=",";
  input name :$20.;
datalines;

hhmmm... is this what you are looking for?

 

Data have;
length name $15;
do j=1 to 1000;
do i=1 to 3;
if i=1 then do; name="Programming"; output; end;
if i=2 then do; name="Is"; output;end;
if i=3 then do; name="Cool"; output;end;
end;
end;

run;

I don't understand this. If that's your logic, then the word 'is' will be in the 2'nd row. And in the 5'th row. Which is not even?

My mistake, but hopefully I made it understandable when I said I was looking for an output that looked like

 

OBS name

1 Programming

2 Is

3 Cool

4 Programming

5 is

6 Cool

....

 

Sorry for the mix up
