Well, maybe you did, and maybe you didn't. PROC CONTENTS, for instance,
reports that there are zero deleted observations. On the other hand, if you
call up the file in FSVIEW, there's an observation number 240, and an
observation number 242, but no observation number 241. You see the same
thing (no observation 241) in VIEWTABLE. FSEdit also jumps from observation
240 to 242.
Personally, I wouldn't trust anything about a dataset that says it was
created in 1960 using SAS Version 7, regardless of the source. Either
someone's not playing by the rules, or there was something wrong with the
