Only one record is reading from text file

Only one record is reading from text file

Only one record is reading from text file

(OP)
I have a text file that has the following data
C
 991699740
 SOUTHWEST Data Example    
   
 088
    
 9557427387
 ROANOKE       
 
 A
 546651740
 NORTHWEST Data Example    
   
 065
    
 6557427387
 RICHMOND

Here is the code I use in SAS
data multi1;
infile 'v:\pcsas_export_files\Multi_Load\file_1.txt';
        input Code $2. /      
              Acct $9. /
              AcctName $30. //
              ID  $3. /
              Reg $10. /
              City $15.//
              
              
               
;
    run;
In this example there are two entries, each beginning with a letter (in this case C and A).  When I run the program the first record reads ok but not the second record. How can I get both records to read.
