This is a private reply that I am fetching from my archives.
The single data step posted yesterday
took a bit of reading to figure out what was going on.
reading and rereading the data set to put the Total on each obs
was ... ingenious. and obfuscating.
See use of proc MEANS/SUMMARY at end.

_N_ is the observation number; it is SAS-generated.

well, I would have named these Lo and Hi.
hmmmm, F and L, ... ah: First and Last!

read the data set from ObsNum = First to Last
for this ID number.

others will chime in that you can use proc SUMMARY instead.
proc MEANS data = MERGED;
class Trid;%*may not be needed;
out = SUM %*data set name;
sum = Sum; %*variable name: Tot?;
