Paul already corrected your problem with column input.
But you have another problem waiting to happen. You have
named your last variable MRI, and then your second data
step has the line:
where you have no variable MRI_Count ! This is either
a misprint, or else you will have trouble here as soon
as you try to use the values of MRI. You should rename
the variable in your first data step to whatever you want
to call it, rather than make a new variable with the same
value [and, in your case, get the assignment statement
backwards so it won't work].
For that matter, there's no reason you can't put your
formula for RATIO in the *first* data step and completely
drop the second data step.
