Including or excluding every nth record in the input name-and-address file allows you to process or bypass every user-specified number of records in the file. For example, we want to specify to process every third record in the input file.

Example - Including Every Third Record

Note: iFor the input name-and-address file, you can use the NTHSEL inclusion and exclusion sampling function in conjunction with a FILEDF cross-sectional function. This allows you to include/exclude a fraction of every nth record.
