I am running a code like this 

data test test1;

set sample;

if id in ("10") and code in ("26", "260", "8") then do;

check = yes;

output test;

run;

 

This is fetching records for (10, 260) but not for (10, 26) and (10,  8 )

please suggest

If the values are right-aligned in the character variable, use the LEFT or STRIP functions to get rid of the leading blanks. Or include the leading blanks in your values in the IN list.
