Dear David,

It works for me! Not sure what you tested or how but you can/should be able to have the SET statement before the IF .

see my log -

38 data a3; delete; run;

NOTE: The data set WORK.A3 has 0 observations and 0 variables. NOTE: DATA statement used: real time 0.01 seconds cpu time 0.01 seconds

39 40 DATA _NULL_; 41 SET A3 NOBS=HOWMANY; 42 IF HOWMANY = 0 THEN DO; 43 %put 'no records to process'; 'no records to process' 44 END; 45 RUN;

NOTE: There were 0 observations read from the data set WORK.A3. NOTE: DATA statement used: real time 0.03 seconds cpu time 0.01 seconds

Regards, Charles Patridge
