I am a little stuck on this problem for my homework.
The problem is:
I have tried to look at the online doc for help on this, but I could not find a SAS File I/O function that would work for the program that I have currently:
proc fcmp outlib=work.functions.Marketing;
function Nums(dataset) $40;
Could someone please let me know what SAS File I/O I should use in order for this program to return correctly?

If you are a student keep me in mind when you are ready to search for a job. I am almost always looking for to hire one or two SAS users at varying levels. Currently I have two positions open for expert level positions and I just closed one for an entry level SAS user.

Not for entry level positions. Typically we will only have programmers working remotely after they have already worked in one of our offices for an extended period of time. Especially for beginner and intermediate level positions. One of the positions I have at this time could work from our office in New York instead of Colorado, this would be for an expert level SAS statistical programmer and researcher.
Here are the positions I currently have available:

I will definitely keep you in mind! I am currently working on my Prob-Stat undergrad at Metro and I will be graduating Sprint 2013.
Do you have a LinkedIn page?

Good code, but a slight change is in order. The number of "logical" observations is a slightly different attribute: nlobs instead of nobs
There is rarely a difference. NOBS is the total number of observations, which is unaffected by observations that have been interactively marked for deletion but not yet physically removed from the data set. NLOBS is reduced by the number of observations that have been marked for deletion. The L in NLOBS is for "Logical".

NLOBS is a good recommendation, it aids in situations where as you said, you have deleted records, and also cases where you use the file operation functions to apply where clauses to datasets and other things as well.
