# Drop NA Values with SAS

I have an xlsx file that I wish to delete the NA values in SAS. I'm new to SAS, how do I do this?

• By “Delete the NA values” you mean observations ? You can delete all the missing observations but not the values ... in your dataset if you drop all observations that has 1+ missing that you loose almost all the data ... better is to impute the missing.

For numeric data(observations) in order to drop you can use missing and delete:
data olddata;
