A starter SAS user got a little confused on functions and procedures. Thanks for bearing me on this.
Suppose that I have a string of numbers of interval ratio from a survey, but here is the problem. I don't know how to sort it by absolute value. Should I create a variable to contain these absolute values in procedures step or I can have other solutions by using some functions?

You've probably posted this in the wrong forum but you should post more info, anyhow, in order for others to know what you are seeking. A small example of your data would help as well as an explanation of what you would ultimately like to accomplish with the data.

For example, I have some numbers gained from the individual survey such as -5 -7 3 -1 4 -6 1 ... and I want to sort them by the power of absolute values then I could chose to display the survey question items by this order.
