Quartz | Level 8


This is a table A and B.








I want to create the following result by using SQL with the KEY value of the DTGBN column.




some body help me!!!!

Diamond | Level 26

Please explain the logic used here to give the desired result to be 100+300+50+70-20


How do you get that from the original data, what is the logic?


What does table B have to do with this problem?

Paige Miller

How do you know that you are supposed to:

  1. Add the four RFAMT entries in blue cells (100+300+50+70)
  2. Subtract the RFAMT in yellow (-20)
  3. Ignore the RFAMT in the white cell (970000090)


Why do you refer to the DTBIN column as a key?

The hash OUTPUT method will overwrite a SAS data set, but not append. That can be costly. Consider voting for Add a HASH object method which would append a hash object to an existing SAS data set

Would enabling PROC SORT to simultaneously output multiple datasets be useful? Then vote for
Allow PROC SORT to output multiple datasets

Just guessing:

  • DTGBN: T = addition, M = substraction
  • table_b.accno must match either table_a.iacno or table_a.oacno


Drop the idea of using sql, data step is most likely better readable an far easier to code.

Until you post the data in usable form (data steps with datalines) i can't suggest any code.

Another thing you need to tell us: what exactly do you expect as output? A dataset, a table, a line in the log? How should it look like?
