Hi,

 

I am trying to run the code using CAS server instead of EG with the following code:

 

proc sql;
update mylib.dataset_a x
Set column_wanted=1
where exists (select column_A from mylib.dataset_b y
and x.person=y.person and x.date>=y.date
and y.date>=x.date-366);
quit;

 

Wondering what i should be putting in SAS Studio in order for it to work. Thanks!

If you have a LOG you should show the log with the code and any associated notes, warnings or errors.

 

From what you posted you have a mismatched parentheses. Somewhere there should be a matching ).

proc sql;
update mylib.dataset_a x
Set column_wanted=1
where exists (select column_A from mylib.dataset_b y
             ^ 
and x.person=y.person and x.date>=y.date
and y.date>=x.date-366;
quit;

You may also need to be very cautious about use of "date - 366" without a lot of testing to make sure you are getting the correct boundary. Typically if your values are actually dates then using the INTNX function to increment dates is more reliable as it will account for leap day differences where a fixed number of days may not always do so.
