Query regarding Proc Report

Hi All,

i have a dataset name custtrasac which given below and contain customer transaction details day wise. Now the problem is i have not used proc report for indepth calculation and i have asked to create report which contain 1)monthwise transaction details order by customer id 2) Also i want commulative frequency for transaction id for every month? Can anyone please help me for this code using Proc report only?

custid   transactionId   dates

=====================

1001     100001          1/1/2012

1002     100002           1/2/2012

Re: Query regarding Proc Report


Hi:

  PROC FREQ is much better at giving you cumulative frequency than PROC REPORT. What is the reason you must use PROC REPORT? But you want 2 reports, as numbered above, right? You show very little data - there's not enough to run a test. And, you don't show what the output should look like. What is the type of report you need? HTML, RTF, PDF?

  For report #1 (the customerid report), what are "monthwise transaction details" -- you only show 3 variables, but there are no amounts to summarize, so the only calculated numbers you could get would be N and PCTN and whatever you calculate. For report #2 (the transaction report), you say that you want cumulative frequency for tranactionid for every month -- so this report would be basically a count of customerids for every month? The way you show your data, it looks like every transaction id sort of "matches" every customer id -- the way you show it, every transaction id is unique on every row and every customer id is unique on every row. Could you have duplicate transaction ids? Could you have duplicate customer ids? Is there any linkage between customer id and tranaction id?

Could 1 customer have multiple transactions?

custid   transactionId   dates

==================================

1001     100001          1/1/2012

1002     100012          1/2/2012

1002     100022          1/2/2012

1002     100032          1/3/2012

1003     100013          1/1/2012

1003     100023          1/1/2012

OR,

could multiple customers have the same transactions on the same day or different days?

custid   transactionId   dates

==================================

1001     100001          1/1/2012

1002     100001          1/2/2012

1002     100002          1/2/2012

1002     100003          1/3/2012

1003     100002          1/1/2012

1003     100003          1/2/2012

   

  What code have you tried? Knowing these details and the destination you want and the code you've tried will help anyone who might have some ideas of how to help you with this question. Here's some sample code using "fake" data that contains duplicate customer id values and duplicate transaction values and duplicate days, along with an example of what you might get from PROC FREQ by default.
