Put macro variable into table with proc sql

Hi, I am new and really out of idea about the way to put the macro variable created as one number into a column in data set. Hope you all can give me some tips on it.

I have created a variable with one number, 'all_tabs'=2130.

I have a data set name gigantic, 3 column and 23 rows. Data set is created using proc sql, how can I insert the value of macro into the gigantic dataset as new variable "all_tabs_sums"?

Here is the command:

proc sql;

select *, sum(total_sales) format= 16.2 into :all_tabs

from data_info_interview;

create table gigantic as

select *

from Hall_sum ;

Just guessing.

select sum(total_sales) format= 16.2 into : all_tabs

from data_info_interview;

create table gigantic as

select *, &all_tabs as all_tabs_sums

from Hall_sum ;
