SAS A00-232 Sample Questions:

01. Which statement correctly describes a SAS in-line view?
a) A SAS in-line view is a subquery in the HAVING clause.
b) A SAS in-line view is used to populate a SAS array from a SAS data set.
c) A SAS in-line view is a SAS data set that contains a compiled DATA step.
d) A SAS in-line view is a temporary table that exists only during the SQL procedure query execution.
 
02. Open a new programming window to create ACT01.sas in c:\cert\programs.
Write a SAS program that will:
- Create output data set work.ACT01 using sashelp.pricedata as input.
- Use an array to increase the values of the price1 through price17 variables by 10%.
Run your program and troubleshoot as necessary. When you are finished with the project:
1. Ensure that you have saved your program as ACT01.sas in c:\cert\programs.
2. From the score.sas program, call the scoreit macro using ACT01 as the parameter: %scoreit(ACT01).
What is the value for Response in the SAS log?
Solution: All price values for all price1-through price17 will be increased by 10%. For example, price2 in observation 5 will now be 126.50. Arrays and do loops would be used in the program.
Determine whether the given solution is correct?
a) Correct
b) Incorrect
 
03. Which statement creates global macro variables and assigns null values to the variables?
a) %ADD
b) %GLOBAL
c) %LET
d) %NULL
 
04. The following SAS program is submitted:
options __________;
%abc(work.look,Hello,There);
In the text box above, complete the options statement that will produce the following log messages:
M*****(ABC): title1 "Hello" ;
M*****(ABC): title2 "There" ;
M*****(ABC): proc print data=work.look ;
M*****(ABC): run ;
Solution: mprint
Determine whether the given solution is correct?
a) Correct
b) Incorrect
 
05. Open a new programming window to create MAC01.sas in c:\cert\programs. Write a DATA step that reads only the first observation of the sashelp.cars data set and stores the value of the Make variable in a macro variable named CarMaker.
The macro variable must be defined from within the DATA Step.
Run your program and troubleshoot as necessary. When you are finished with the project:
1. Ensure that you have saved your program as MAC01.sas in c:\cert\programs.
2. From the score.sas program, call the scoreit macro using MAC01 as the parameter: %scoreit(MAC01).
What is the value for Response in the SAS log?
Solution: The CarMaker macro variable will have a value of Acura. The program will include a symputx routine.
Determine whether the given solution is correct?
a) Correct
b) Incorrect
 
06. Which is a characteristic of a hash object in a SAS DATA step?
Select one:
a) The hash object requires the data to be sorted.
b) The hash object requires the data to be indexed.
c) The data contained in the hash object can only be loaded from a SAS data set.
d) The hash object can contain character or numeric data or it can contain a combination of both character and numeric data.
 
07. You write the following note to the SAS log:

a) A
b) B
c) C
D) D
 
09. You submit the following SAS statement: 
%let idcode=Prod567; 
Which SAS statement stores the value 567 in the macro variable codenum?
Select one:
a) %let codenum=%substr(&idcode,length(&idcode)-2);
b) %let codenum=%substr(&idcode,length(&idcode)-3);
c) %let codenum=%substr(&idcode,%length(&idcode)-2);
d) %let codenum=%substr(&idcode,%length(&idcode)-3);
 
10. A local permanent data set has the following characteristics:
- 80 character variables, length 200, storing 28 bytes of non-repeating characters
- 120 numeric variables, length 8, 14 digits
- 4000 observations
