I have cohort followed over 12 months. Time points have 2 variables:
   visit: coded after the number of weeks on treatmnet:
0,2,4,8,12,16,20,24,36 & 52 (patients expected to come on these weeks)
otherwise coded 999 if unexpected visit.
   week: showing the exact week number patient came to clinic.

I am trying to generate variable with value=1 to select patients who
came at all visits (mentioned above), with intention to identify
patients who did not come to the expected appointments.

=============================================================

I see three possible deviations from the expected:

1. The patient did not come to an expected appointment
2. An unexpected visit
3. The patient came to an expected appointment, but not at the right
week.

It is not quite clear what you want; please be more specific. It would
help if you show a short example.
