NOTE: Libref TEMP was successfully assigned as follows:
Physical Name: C:\mysaslib
51 data temp.report;
52 set sasuser.houses;
53 newvar = price * 1.04;
NOTE: There were 15 observations read from the data set SASUSER.HOUSES.
NOTE: The data set TEMP.REPORT has 15 observations and 7 variables.
NOTE: DATA statement used (Total process time):
real time 0.01 seconds
cpu time 0.01 seconds
When the statement data temp.report; is used, SAS stores the output in a permanent dataset stored in library referenced by libref TEMP. When the statement set sasuser.houses; is used, SAS reads in the permanent dataset stored in the library referenced by libref SASUSER. This means the program is reading from a permanent data set and writing to a permanent data set and option D is correct.
The one and only FREE resource for general SAS online training as well as study guides for the SAS Base Certification. My goal is to create the SAS Certification prep guide that I never found but always wanted. This should also be a place to come if you are new to the language but are simply looking for online SAS training.
