your (in = ...) is wrong. You need a variable there to keep the information
"true" or "false", in SAS 1 or 0, like:
(in = ae) and
(in = treatement)
you can also use different names like
(in = in_one)
you simply have to change your IF - statement for that.
That has nothing to do with the dataset-name work.ae or ae.
