Subject:      Re: how to calculate average for below data?

nway what does that mean "data like this"? always 8 tnums? Only patid=001? each obs with aval=23.4? what are group variables, what analysis? aval? In that case you don't need a datastep, the average is always 23.4! With that data and without any further description it is not really possible to see what you need.
