You can add in a custom sort variable, sort the variable and then take the first/last depending on your logic. Here's a way using proc format.

 

data have;
	input id value;
	value_order=put(value, order_fmt. -l);
	cards;
1 0
1 1
1 2
2 0
2 0
2 2
2 0
3 0
3 0
3 0
3 0
;

proc format ;
	value order_fmt 1=1 2=2 0=3;
run;

proc sort data=have;
	by id value_order;
run;

data want;
	set have;
	by id;

	if first.id;
run;

Hi,

 

proc sql;
  create table WANT as
  select  distinct A.ID,
          case  when exists(select distinct ID from HAVE where ID=A.ID and VALUE=1) then 1
                when exists(select distinct ID from HAVE where ID=A.ID and VALUE=2) then 2
                else 0 end as VALUE
  from    HAVE A;
quit;
