  Posted by Guest - Sas Error - Missing Numeric Suffix? :
What is this error in the SAS program code below?  I can't get past it but it keeps asking about a numeric suffix which makes no sense.

SAS doesn't allow any hyphens in your field variables, so its giving you error messages on it.  Just change your sas names there to underscores or remove the hyphens and the errors will go away.
