Re: Need help in coding below problem

Hi:

  What code have you tried? Have you written the code to read the data files into SAS tables? How do you envision processing the data to calculate the new salaries? Using a DATA step program/programs or using SQL? What is the final result of the program? Do you need a report? Or do you need a dataset with the new salaries?

Cynthia has valid questions that should be answered to give a more exact answer. Here is pseudo proc sql that should get you going:

proc sql;

  create table output as

  select

  em.name,

  s.current_salary,

  case

  when e.profile = 'Pilot' and r.promotion = 0 and r.rating = 1 then s.current_salary * 1.2

  when e.profile = 'Pilot' and r.promotion = 0 and r.rating = 2 then s.current_salary * 1.12

  when e.profile = 'Pilot' and r.promotion = 0 and r.rating = 3 then s.current_salary * 1.08

  when e.profile != 'Pilot' and r.promotion = 0 and r.rating = 1 then s.current_salary * 1.12

  when e.profile != 'Pilot' and r.promotion = 0 and r.rating = 2 then s.current_salary * 1.06

  when e.profile != 'Pilot' and r.promotion = 0 and r.rating = 3 then s.current_salary * 1.04

  when e.profile = 'Pilot' and r.promotion = 1 and r.rating = 1 then s.current_salary * 1.2 + s.current_salary * .1

  when e.profile = 'Pilot' and r.promotion = 1 and r.rating = 2 then s.current_salary * 1.12 + s.current_salary * .1

  when e.profile = 'Pilot' and r.promotion = 1 and r.rating = 3 then s.current_salary * 1.08 + s.current_salary * .1

  when e.profile != 'Pilot' and r.promotion = 1 and r.rating = 1 then s.current_salary * 1.12 + s.current_salary * .1

  when e.profile != 'Pilot' and r.promotion = 1 and r.rating = 2 then s.current_salary * 1.06 + s.current_salary * .1

  when e.profile != 'Pilot' and r.promotion = 1 and r.rating = 3 then s.current_salary * 1.04 + s.current_salary * .1

  end as new_salary

  from

  rating r,

  employeemaster e,

  salary s

  where

  e.employee_id = s.employee_id

  and e.employee_id = r.employee_id;

quit;
