In the code below, I get 0 for the variable temp.  Could you tell me why and ways around it.  Thanks. 

 

 

PROC FEDSQL sessref = sess ;                                                             
 create table casuser.temp as
select 1/2 as temp;
QUIT;

To prevent integer division, use

select 1. / 2 as temp;

 

You can put the decimal point on either the numerator or denominator.

Just to be clear, did you intentionally leave off the FROM statement? You do not have an input data table?

Yes, in reality I am multiplying the fraction by some data from an input dataset.  I took all that out to focus in on the behavior of the fraction which is zero with or without an input dataset.
