One simple Where. Most of the procedures will only apply the last Where statement if multiples are in the code.

WHERE ALSO adds conditions to a previous Where.

 

You can also use compound conditions like

Where somevar in ('this value' 'that value') and Othervar=5;

 

If you are going to experiment with Proc Sort you want to make sure that you use an OUT= destination data set different than the source data to prevent removing records when your logic isn't quite right.
