Find a Count of branches based on sales

Hi,

 

I'm stuck with the coding part for this particular dataset.

Kindly help.

 

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

We have a branch sales data in below table, read this dataset and then categorize and find count of branches on basis of sales.

 

Sales can be categorized as

 

Category

Low

Sales < 2,00,000

Medium

2,00,000 < sales < 3,00,000

High

3,00,000 < sales < 4,00,000

Exceptional

Sales > 4,00,000

 

                                                                                          

Branch

sales

1

2,80,000

2

1,50,000

3

4,50,000

4

3,20,000

5

2,22,000

6

7

5,00,343

8

2,28,000 is not recognized by SAS as a number. Providing data in a data step will immediately show you that.

what if there's no comma ? 

 

Consider the sales price as - Rs. 228000.

Same for all the rest.

 

 

Thanks !

Please provide example data for testing in a data step with datalines, and show the code you already have.

Re: Find a Count of branches based on sales

I'm new to this and have never used ",count".

 

,count(calculated Category) as Count
