Barry ,

YOu wont unless you go back a few versions in the hard docs. SAS supports implicit do loops due to back wards compatibility. However it is not something SI recommends doing. Implicit do loops are less code to write they are also make your code less descriptive to others and esspecially to peeps new to SAS.

I give up. I have searched both the Language Dictionary and Language Concepts (9.1.3 PDF versions) and cannot find any reference to DO OVER or any reference to _i_ as a default index.

Where should I be looking?

Implicitly sub-scripted ARRAYs do not need "coded" subscripts just set the subscript variable (default _i_) and reference the array. Do OVER in this case is very much like DO _I_ = 1 to dim(array name);
