I am trying to map my data at the CBSA level. I was going to use the sashelp.zipcode dataset. But it doesn't include CBSA data. Is there another SAS dataset that include CBSA? Is there a way to get around this?
Thank you for any input you have!

I'm going to be a bit tongue in cheek but WHICH definition of CBSA are concerned with? The Canada Border Services Agency? Credit Bureau Services Association?
Or 3 minutes on Google would have brought you to:

The Census website has the CBSA (Core Based Statistical Area) map. 2014 TIGER/Line® Shapefiles
Use Proc MAPIMPORT to read in the Shapefile.
I don't understand why you need to join it to your Proc GEOCODE data set.

Do you guys create maps before with SAS? Can somebody help me with how to create a Statecode map of USA.? I converted the excel data set to a SAS data set and linked with the data set but after that I get Stock.

I'm not sure what you mean.
First, there is the library MAPSSAS that has the old maps in it. It is not being updated. And MAPS currently points to MAPSSAS.
Second, there is the MAPSGFK library that points to the new and latest maps. It fixes some of the inconsistencies that were in MAPSSAS (MAPS) and is slightly different. (Look at the following for more info: http://support.sas.com/rnd/papers/#2013 and see Tips and Tricks: Using the new SAS Map data sets ) .
Some of the MAPSGFK maps may already contain what you need. The *_attr files contain more information. For example, US_STATE already has the STATECODE in it.
If you need something else, send more details.
