I need help with this problem, the professor, didnt help very clear.

The data set orion.orders contains information about in-store, catalog, and Internet orders

as well as delivery dates.

a.     Orion Star wants to study catalog and Internet orders that were delivered quickly, as well as those that went slowly.

·   Create three data sets named, work.slow, and work.veryslow.

·   type WHERE statement to read only the observations with Order_Type equal

to 2 (catalog) or 3 (Internet).

·   Make a variable named ShipDays that is the number of days between when the order

is placed and when the order is delivered.

·   Handle the output as follows:

-   Output to when the value of ShipDays is less than 3.

-   Output to work.slow when the value of ShipDays is 5 to 7.

-   Output to work.veryslow when the value of ShipDays is greater than 7.

-   Do not output an observation when the value of ShipDays is 3 or 4.

·   Drop the variable Employee_ID.

·   There should be 80 observations in, 69 observations in work.slow, and 5 observations in work.veryslow.

Of the 490 observations in orion.orders, only 230 are read due to the WHERE statement.

b.     Print your results from work.veryslow with an appropriate title.


Orders taking more than 7 days to deliver

                                Order_                      Order_    Delivery Ship

C.Type solution to the previous exercise using SELECT logic instead of IF-THEN/ELSE logic. Refer to SAS documentation to explore the use of a compound expression in a SELECT statement. Print the data set work.veryslow.
