Hi I was wondering how to order the following data into a new column.

 

ID      ORDERID  DATE

1000  1098          2018-05-22

1000  1756          2018-05-29

1000  1965          2018-07-22

1001  1145          2018-06-14

1001  1456          2018-08-12

1002  1468          2018-05-28

1003  1548          2018-09-03

1004  1007          2018-06-01

1004  1789          2018-07-27

 

What I need is a new purchase count column to tell me the 1st, 2nd etc purchase from each ID.

 

ID      ORDERID  DATE           No of purchase

1000  1098          2018-05-22     1

1000  1756          2018-05-29     2

1000  1965          2018-07-22     3

1001  1145          2018-06-14     1

1001  1456          2018-08-12     2

1002  1468          2018-05-28     1

1003  1548          2018-09-03     1

1004  1007          2018-06-01     1

1004  1789          2018-07-27     2

 

Thanks!

Sort data by id, then use a datastep with group processing and retain/reset "NoOfPurchase".

 

If you want code, post data as datastep using datalines statement.
