Hi I just used a sum function in VIYA (3.5). To my suprise sum(1,.) returns missing. in 9.4 it would return 1. Is the sum function changed in VIYA?

Maybe it was a bug in a previous version.

77   
78   data _null_;
79   x1 = sum(1,.);
80   put x1=;
81   run;
x1=1
NOTE: DATA statement used (Total process time):
      real time           0.00 Sekunden
      cpu time            0.01 Sekunden
      
82   
83   %put &=sysvlong;
SYSVLONG=V.04.00M0P031422

Thanks, works as intended. I had another fault in my code and got stuck. Bad post by me
