Hi Adriano,

You might use formats, where the (unconditionally) illegal values are clearly indicated (e.g. [., 99 - high = 'illegal']. Based on that kind of output you could search for the individual, illegal values.

My computer says 'beep'. What's wrong with that? It's talking too much!

Hi all,

I received a lot of datasets with a lot of inconsisnteces. I need to look for all errors with simple steps like:

proc print data=brad;

var p171a p18a1 p19a1 p20a1 p21a p25 p27b p28a p29 p30a p31a;

where p171a=0 or p18a1=. or p19a1=. or p20a1=. or p21a=. or p25=. or p27b=30

or p28a=20 or p29=. or p30a=. or p30a=52 or p31a=50 or p31a=.;


I dont have a big problem, but i want to highlight the errors, because when one record is printed, i need to look where is the error (in wich variable).

Of course i can use where only to one variable each time, but have a simple way to highlight what i am looking for?

Thx in advance, Adriano
