Hi,

I would like to select data between two dates and then exclude certain firms within those dates.

Dates are identified by TRANDATE (i.e. transaction date)

Firm I.D is based of the variable SIC

I tried to perform this in two steps because I wasn't sure how to do this in one.

I keep unfortunately getting error msg's

data subsamp1;

  set table1;

  if TRANDATE between '01jan1986'd and '31Dec2003'd then delete;

run;

data   subsamp2;

  set subsamp1;

  if 4900<= SIC <= 4999 or

  6000<= SIC <= 6999 then delete;

run;
