1. I want to classify the same customers' ID into a group and then plus their quantity together what command I can use?
2. How to controll the quantity in increasing order or decreasing order ?

There are a few items to clean up first:
Once those issues are cleared up, you can look at how PROC SORT can change the order of the observations. At that point, you can also consider whether you want to group all customers, or whether you want to process only a single CustomerID.

For point 1, change all single quotes to double quotes.
For point 2, you have to decide on the result you want. Do you actually want to print the data set twice (once before sorting, and once after sorting)? If you only want to print it once, when should it print (again, before vs. after sorting)?
