Hello,

I want to create table, that showing the percentage of each region in the total sales.

My data: 

Pawel__0-1610573574283.png

I wrote something like this:

proc sql;
create table want8 as
Select Genre, NA_Sales/sum(EU_Sales,NA_Sales, JP_Sales, Other_Sales) as NA_Sales format=percent8.2, EU_Sales/sum(EU_Sales,NA_Sales, JP_Sales, Other_Sales)
as EU_Sales format=percent8.2, JP_Sales/sum(EU_Sales,NA_Sales, JP_Sales, Other_Sales) as JP_Sales format=percent8.2
from games order by Genre;
quit;
run;
proc print data=want8;
run;

But I get this result:

I wonder why it doesn't group correctly.

instead of

 

 

sum(EU_Sales,NA_Sales, JP_Sales, Other_Sales)

 

 

you can put

 

 

sum(EU_Sales+NA_Sales+ JP_Sales+ Other_Sales)

 

 

 

 

proc sql;
create table want8 as
Select Genre, sum(NA_Sales)/sum(EU_Sales+NA_Sales+ JP_Sales+ Other_Sales) as NA_Sales format=percent8.2, sum(EU_Sales)/sum(EU_Sales+NA_Sales+ JP_Sales+ Other_Sales)
as EU_Sales format=percent8.2, sum(JP_Sales)/sum(EU_Sales+NA_Sales+ JP_Sales+ Other_Sales) as JP_Sales format=percent8.2
from games group by Genre order by Genre;
quit;
run;
proc print data=want8;
run;

that should work.

With the code you showed us you are calculating the percentage of each region per game (i.e. each row in the output table is a game ).

 

What do you want to obtain? (i.e. What does a row represent in the desired output table?)

then you have to group by genre.

 

proc sql;
create table want8 as
Select Genre, sum(NA_Sales)/sum(EU_Sales,NA_Sales, JP_Sales, Other_Sales) as NA_Sales format=percent8.2, sum(EU_Sales)/sum(EU_Sales,NA_Sales, JP_Sales, Other_Sales)
as EU_Sales format=percent8.2, sum(JP_Sales)/sum(EU_Sales,NA_Sales, JP_Sales, Other_Sales) as JP_Sales format=percent8.2
from games group by Genre order by Genre;
quit;
run;
proc print data=want8;
run;

  

this code should work

Unfortunately the result is the same.

you also need to take the sum of the desired region per genre instead of just the sum of the game, that's why I put sum(region_sale) instead of region_sale.

After making this change the result is the same?

Sorry, I didn't notice this change. However, now the result is this :

instead of

 

 

sum(EU_Sales,NA_Sales, JP_Sales, Other_Sales)

 

 

you can put

 

 

sum(EU_Sales+NA_Sales+ JP_Sales+ Other_Sales)

 

 

 

 

proc sql;
create table want8 as
Select Genre, sum(NA_Sales)/sum(EU_Sales+NA_Sales+ JP_Sales+ Other_Sales) as NA_Sales format=percent8.2, sum(EU_Sales)/sum(EU_Sales+NA_Sales+ JP_Sales+ Other_Sales)
as EU_Sales format=percent8.2, sum(JP_Sales)/sum(EU_Sales+NA_Sales+ JP_Sales+ Other_Sales) as JP_Sales format=percent8.2
from games group by Genre order by Genre;
quit;
run;
proc print data=want8;
run;

that should work.
