I'm not able to read the below datalines corretly. I want the table to look just like it appears in the datalines (i.e., missing values in field 3 for row 3 and 4).

data x;

infile datalines dlm=' ' dsd;

input  scode field2 field3 field4;

datalines;

2 23 34543 233409

3 24 34569 800380

5 45           098873

8 33           093872

;

Hello Friend,

1)

in this table all variable are in numerical so you have to represent a period  (a dot) for  missing value.

data x;

input  score field2  field3 field4;

datalines;

2 23 34543 233409

3 24 34569 800380

5 45      198873

8 33      093872

;

run;

try this also...

if you want to missing value  then you can  use  $ sign...

data x;

input  score field2  field3 $5. field4;

datalines;

2 23 34543 233409

3 24 34569 800380

5 45      198873

8 33      093872
