Hi,

The assignment I'm working asks me to use proc univariate to explore the 8 extreme observations in a worksheet, so I used the SAS Documentation and it says to use 

nextrobs=8;

which gives me an error: ERROR 180-322: Statement is not valid or it is used out of proper order.

Can anyone tell me how to fix it? Thank you.

i have a question relating to this. The nextrob option is not in parentheses but the (obs=n) is. are they not both options? How do I know when to put something in parentheses?

OBS= is a Dataset Option.  Like KEEP= or RENAME=. Those always appear in parentheses after a dataset name.  They are totally independent of PROC UNIVARIATE.  You can use dataset options pretty much anywhere you use a dataset name.

 

NEXTROB is an optional part the PROC UNIVARIATE statement.

Thank you for the reply Tom. Now I understand better.

use codes like below:

ods select extremeobs;
proc univariate data=pg1.eu_occ nextrobs=10;
var camp;
run;
ods trace off;
