Subject: Re: INDEX question
6.0x covers a lot of ground. The final PC-DOS release was 6.04, the latest MVS
release is 6.08. My Proc Guide says indexes became available in 6.06. Allow me
to assume at least 6.06. Allow me the totally unjustifiable assumption that you
are using PROC DATASETS (it is also possible to create an index during a data
step, and you can use MODIFY in a data step, and I hope that is not what you are
doing). Given all of that, did you code LIBRARY= on the PROC DATASETS
statement, selecting the correct library? Does the MODIFY statement specify a
single level name (a dataset in the library selected on the PROC statement)?
Does the variable you are trying to index exist--it should if this is to be a
simple (one variable) index?

I'm trying to create an INDEX to use with a BY expression. I use the
INDEX CREATE variable;
I can't seem to satisfy the SAS system with the datasetname. The 6.0
manual is no help. I'm using SAS on a UNIX system, version is 6.0x.
