The example was from "Multiple Imputation for Missing Data: Concepts and New Development" which is posted on SAS Support at: <>. I later realized the paper stated: "These procedures are still under development and will be available in experimental form in Release 8.1 of the SAS System." Apparently it was never implemented for version 9; using Proc MI statements that actually exist has worked out much better.

Thanks, Scott

As far as I know, MULTINORMAL is not a legal statement in SAS 9.2 either.

What example is this, and from what book?
