I found code on the web that helps, it will produce 14 observations in a data set, but it creates a data set.. :( So I would still have to merge stuff together? so it could be counted as part of proc summary, or the like? And still have to make a data set for each leave code?

data testing; set perm.f20032004 (rename=( actualhrs=actlhrs leavecd=leave_code)); where leave_code='952'; by emplid Leave_code; * reset score at each change of recno; if first.emplid then score = 0; * increment score at each change in comp, except when comp=0; if first.leave_code and leave_code <> 0 then score + 1; * output the accumulate score before the next change in recno; if last.emplid then output;


data testing2;

do until (last.emplid) ; set perm.f20032004 (rename=( actualhrs=actlhrs leavecd=leave_code));where leave_code='952'; by emplid leave_code ; score = sum (last.emplid) ; end ; run ;
