What you should expect is 42 observations, read in two iterations of
the data step (unless the dataset you read has a variable called I,
which may change the number of iterations in the loop for each iteration
of the data step).
If there is not an I variable on your input dataset, you should get
two series of I values, each of them going 1,3,5...41. I cannot understand
why you are getting only 5 observations out, my best guess is that you
have set the option OBS=5. Try submitting "OPTIONS OBS=MAX;" and then the
rest of your code - my guess is that you will now get 42 observations.
