Rui,

If you are looking to compare records within a dataset so that perhaps duplicates can be removed, you can use a PROC SORT step with a NODUPS option ... another alternative would be to use PROC COMPARE where you will have to create a second dataset to use in conjunction with the first ...

Can you be more specific as to your intentions and extent of comparison between records you are looking to achieve?

Anthony.
