How do I fix this ERROR: Too few variables defined for the dimension(s) specified for the array

DATA EXPER;
INPUT TIME0-TIME4;
DATALINES;
100 200 300 400 500
55 110 130 150 170
;
DATA Minutes;
SET EXPER;
ARRAY TIME[0:4] TIME0 – TIME4;
DO I= 0 TO 4;
TIME[I]= ROUND(TIME[I]/60,.1);
END;
DROP I;
RUN;
PROC PRINT DATA=MINUTES NOOBS;
TITLE “LISTING OF Data set Minutes”;
run;

 

I keep getting the same error regardless if i change the number of variables. 
'Too few variables defined for the dimension(s) specified for the array '- is the error I keep getting. Does anyone have any suggestions as what could be wrong in the code?

Re: How do I fix this ERROR: Too few variables defined for the dimension(s) specified for the array

When I pasted your code into my editor this line

ARRAY TIME[0:4] TIME0 – TIME4;

shows the dash like characer as a box drawing character.

Try retyping the dash with the one on your keyboard.

This kind of character change happens when copying from documents that are not plain text such as Word, which will "helpfully" change some characters.
