I want to generate a summarized column with the total value of the elements in the column repeating each time.
Number of cars Total Number of cars
I'm using SAS EG, but can't find the correct option among the sum, count, N, sum distinct, count distinc commands.

With the limited info you have given us, I would suggest the following. From your original data set, bring in all the columns you wish to have. If we are going of your example, bring in Number of cars twice Then select SUM under Summary for the column you wish to total. The last step is to deselect "Automatically select grouping". This should fix the problem you where having. If it doesn't, supply more details and I'm sure someone can help.
BTW your results should resemble the table found below:
Num_of_Cars Car_Model Model_Year Sum_of_Num_of_Cars
1 A 2000 15
2 B 2001 15
3 C 2002 15
4 D 2003 15
5 E 2004 15
Also, the SQL should be similar to the code below (the SQL code for a Query Builder can be found by clicking Preview).
CREATE TABLE LIBRARY.QUERY_FOR_DATASETS AS
(SUM(t1.Num_of_Cars)) AS SUM_of_Num_of_Cars
FROM LIBRARY.DATASET t1;
