Hi,

I read a file which contains the totals f each category and the logic is to evaluate that when the totals are less than a particular value read from another file, it'll be writing the error details in another file. My question is here when the input file-totals with 0 observations is read, how the logic above will get executed? Will it be executed every time it evaluates against the null value?

Code:
DATA BMPCOUNT;                     
INFILE BMPCNT FIRSTOBS = 1 OBS = 1;
INPUT @001 TOTCNT 10.             
;                                 

DATA MAXLIMIT;                     
INFILE MAXLMT FIRSTOBS = 1 OBS = 1;
INPUT @001 MAX_COUNT 4.           
      @008 MAX_PERCENT 3.         
;                                 
DATA MAXCNT;                                       
  SET BMPCOUNT;                                     
  SET MAXLIMIT;                                     
  SET TABLE_NM;                                     
   HIGH_PERCENT = MAX_COUNT * ( MAX_PERCENT / 100 );
   H_PERCENT_RND = ROUND(HIGH_PERCENT);             
   IF TOTCNT > HIGH_PERCENT THEN                   
    FILE MAILRPT;                                 


I tested it with MAXLIMIT data with zero observation, but the above condition evaluates to false. But i felt that as the high_percent calculated will be null, and if it's evaluated with TOTCNT, the condition will be returning true! How does this work?

If you actually print the values in MAXCNT after the 3 SET statements you may find the values are not what you believe them to be.
