Hello, I am very new to SAS and would appreciate some help in running a mixed model. I am familiar with SPSS and R however, I would like to learn the SAS programming language. I have managed to import my xlsx file using the snippets feature and the log tells me that the WORK.MYEXCEL data set was successfully created. However, when I begin the run the next few lines of my code (which look like this...)

 

proc mixed DATA=Variation_study;
class  PlayerID TeamID  SeasonID;
model  DepVar =  PositionID  WinLoss;
random =  SeasonID/ subject =  PlayerID;
random =  SeasonID/ subject =   TeamID;
run;

 

I get the following errors...

 

ERROR: Variable PLAYERID not found.

ERROR: Variable TEAMID not found.
ERROR: Variable SEASONID not found

 

Given the data set was successfully imported, i'm unsure of how SAS can't find these variables? Are the names invalid?

 

Thankyou in advance.

Your file is called MyExcel

 

In your PROC you refer to data=variation_study

 

That doesn't quite align. They should be the same.
