## combining datasets

Dataset A has 1000 observations and dataset B has 50 observations and they have no common variables. Is there a way I can combine the 2 datasets such that the same 50 observations of dataset B gets repeated for every 50 observations of dataset A? I also want to label the first 50 observations of the new dataset as 1, the next 50 observations as 2 and so on. Thanks!

This should do it:

data want;

set a;

recno = mod(_n_, 50);

if recno = 1 then group + 1;

else if recno=0 then recno=50;

set b point=recno;

drop recno;

run;
