/* assumptions: Ident is character variable consisting of digits
file is in ident order
ident(j) is part of ident(i) whenever ident(j) begins with ident(i)
missing values are to be replaced with the sum of its parts.
data w ; input Ident $ X ; cards ;
data fix ( keep = ident oldx totx ) ;
set w ( rename = ( x = oldx )) nobs = nobs ;
cp = _n_ ;
totx = oldx ;
do pt = cp + 1 to nobs ;
set w ( rename = ( ident = ptident ) ) point = pt ;
ptident = substr(ptident,1,length(ident)) ;
if ptident > ident then leave ;
totx + x ;
If you do not like it in this form then try baking the DO-loop
conditional on OLDX = . In this case assign TOTX = 0 after the
test but before the loop. The first case allows the test data
as I gave it with a container not necessarily missing. The
suggested changed works with the data you gave and assumes all
containers have X missing.

Subject: Automatic calculation of accounts adding ?
Hello with all,
Beginning on SAS (and in English also;-)), I have a hierarchical
table of the type :
The missing data are adding accounts which I wish to bring up to date
with the opening of the table, and with each modification of one of
the accounts of detail.
How can I carry out this operation under SAS ?
Thank you by advance!
