Hi. I have the following code in SAS

data have;

input Make $ Model $ Type $ Origin $ DriveTrain $ MSRP Invoice;
datalines;
Acura MDX SUV Asia All 36945 33337
BMW X3 SUV Europe All 37000 33873
BMW 325i Sedan Europe All 52195 47720
Dodge Durango SUV USA All 32235 29472
Dodge Neon Sedan USA Front 13670 12849
;

pct_change = (MSRP - Invoice)/Invoice;
format pct_change percent10.;
where Type = "SUV" and DriveTrain = "All";
run;

proc print data = have;
title 'All wheel drive SUVs with less than 10% change in Price';
var Make Model MSRP Invoice pct_change;
where pct_change le 0.1;
run;

and I'm receiving the following errors

80         pct_change = (MSRP - Invoice)/Invoice;
            __________
            180
 
 ERROR 180-322: Statement is not valid or it is used out of proper order.

I don't know what I have done wrong and this should be a simple code so it really confused me. Any help? Thank you in advance!
