Missing is less than everything to SAS, so they should all end up in group 1 on both platforms.

Have you done some proc prints to see if you really have missing as opposed to blanks maybe?

If I run the following code......

data test; set test1; if var < 2 then var_new = 1; else if var <4 then var_new = 2; else if var < 10 then var_new = 3; else var_new = 4; run;

when I run frequencies on the PC, missing data are put into group 4 and on the mainframe into group 1.

Why? It is driving me crazy!
