Yes.  I agree.  Good points all.

And, since SAS dates are just the number of days since 1/1/1960, the
variable is even easier to work with here.  It is just

  interval = disc - enter;

The poster may not know about SAS dates, so simpler may be better.

INTCK() would certainly be needed if the poster were using something other
days {weeks, months, whatever} here, so good point there also.

Re: SAS/Warehouse Administrator Problem?? or SAS/ACCESS problem?? #2
What's the question? I know it you presented it earlier, but you can't expect people to find the pieces of a problem and put them together. Look at the various intermediate results and find the point where they first diverge from what is expected. Then look at the code which generates that particular result. De-macroize that code and prepare some test data so that anybody can run it easily. Then present that isolated version of the problem (if the answer has not already emerged during this process).

Re: Transfering datasets to Unix /SAS from PC/SAS
Hi, Re: <<...tried using FTP --- Invalid header on file...>> If, as Art sagely mentions, the versions of SAS on both platforms are 7 or after, then one note worthy thing to check is that when transferring a dataset with FTP, you must toggle the FTP utility to NOT do any byte convertions. i.e. set mode to BINARY (IMAGE on some platforms). You can certainly make a quick check before and after the transfer with your favorite editor or utility to just look the first bunch of bytes in hex, or whatever, to see if the bytes did not change. The FTP utilities on different platforms, some...

Re: SAS Advanced Programming Exam for SAS 9: SAS Joke of the year. #2
jontugman, Test preparation is akin to following a simple algorithm: 1. Evaluate the test and discover if it is worth taking. 2. If #1 evaluates false then go to exit. 3. Determine if your *test* knowledge of SAS is insufficient. 4. If #3 evaluates true, do the test preparation. 5. Pay the money. 6. Take the test. 7 Exit. From your standpoint, the step of paramount importance is step #1. That is where you mainly failed. From SAS' standpoint, only one step matters: #5. This is the only reason the test was created in the first place. The world would be a better place if all employers un...

Re: SAS Sample 1728 Was ---> Re: SAS Sample 1727 #2
Graham , I am not sure that the SI Tech Support examples should have all the error checking that Chang wanted to throw in the macro. The examples should be clear concise and easy to read and get going, as well as be illistrative. Too much error checking in an example well is just over kill and even detrimental to an example. However, any code solution on the SI Tech Support web sit should follow basic rules of good practices and sound advice. Such as with thier macros having atleast a somewhat good Macro design. Look at Example SAS Sample 1728: The first method well lets say is soooo bad...

Re: SAS time problem and formula problem #2
Please re-post your second question and present the formula in-line, as part of the message. SAS-L does not allow attachments. Also make it a separate posting, with its own subject. When a person has two or more unrelated questions, there is no reason to bundle them in one posting. It's not as if one has to pay for postage.

Re: Newbie SAS Array problem (take 2) #2
Hi Machelle, Nice, good. But you should also declare your arrays dxnum and diagnum as being of character type. And I would even completely avoid this kind of solution. I would use a format instead (with some arrays or some macro code). Create a format for your 46 diagnose codes, like: PROC FORMAT; VALUE $DiagFmt '4270' = 'Paroxysmal supraventricular tachycardia' .............and so on............. ; RUN; And if it is just for presentation then never create a variable with the textual diagnoses, but use the code variables (dx#) instead with the format. If you really n...
