Input syntax should be used

Copy the raw data below into a SAS program.   Using proc print, display the data so that all the Amount values are formatted like the Amount value in the first observation of the raw data.  b) Then, revise the data step so that a format for Amount is stored with the data set, and show the results in proc print, without using any format statement in proc print.  Use appropriate titles that identify which part of the exercise the output comes from.

12244 $1,499.99 144

32189 $20,000 1

92314 49.28 3


What type of format and informat should be used to get the output of the 2nd variable as the first observat format.

Re: Input syntax should be used

Thank you so much. I did use this format syntax but didn't work for me. I used the informat syntax in the input statement, may be that's what gave me errors.
