Use PROC FREQ to find out what the current distinct values are for the
variable and then use the WHERE statement on the appropriate value.
Hope this helps.

Subject: Numeric precision problem
I have a SAS data set on VAX. There's a numeric variable called
'SCHEDULE' with some values like 1.00, 1.01 and 1.02. I download the
data set to PC. When I used a where statement to search observations
with schedule=1.02, the log said "No observation". I think it is a
numeric precision problem during the data transfer between machines.
But it worked fine when I searched observations with schedule=1.01.
Any suggestions is greatly appreciated.
