I need help with this problem, which is very similiar to others ones posted here.
The data set orion.orders contains information about in-store, catalog, and Internet orders
as well as delivery dates.

a. Do two data sets, work.instore and work.delivery, to analyze in-store sales.
· Use a WHERE statement to read-only observations with Order_Type equal to 1.
· Make a variable ShipDays that is the number of days between when the order was placed and when the order was delivered.
· Output to work.instore when ShipDays is equal to 0.
· Output to work.delivery when ShipDays is greater than 0.
· The work.instore data set should contain three variables (Order_ID, Customer_ID, and Order_Date).
The work.delivery data set should contain four variables (Order_ID, Customer_ID, Order_Date, and ShipDays).
· Test this program by reading the first 30 observations that satisfy the WHERE statement. Check the SAS log to verify that no warnings or errors were reported.
b. Modify the program to read the full orion.orders data set. Of the 490 observations in orion.orders, only 260 are read due to the WHERE statement.
c. Print your results from work.delivery with an appropriate title.

d. Use PROC FREQ to display the number of orders per year in work.instore. Add an appropriate title.
Hint: Format the variable Order_Date with a YEAR. format. Restrict the analysis to the variable Order_Date with a TABLES statement.
