In general, this type of code often works very well:Yes, that's what I meant. In my simple example, using the Stata alternative isn't such a problem, but often I want to apply a subcondition to only some values. So, e.g., if x=0 then y=1; else if 1 < x < 10 then do; <other sas commands>; end; else if 11 < x < 20 then do; <other sas commands>; end; It's difficult and tedious to have to write the multiple levels of conditions if the program is going to evaluate every if statement.
