Thank you in advance.

i have a requirement where i have to group variables in the final dataset using proc report.
The final grouping and ordering must match the grouping and ordering shown in the below Webfocus output.  
In this example both  rsn, grp  are grouped and pn is ordered based on freq.
Webfocus output:
   rsn                   grp                  pn      name
   146                claims              124      bell
                                                 124      alica
   146                benefits           100      more
   146                 claims               20      mark
                                                   20      white

sas output:

   rsn                   grp                  pn      name
   146                claims              124      bell
                                                 124      alica
                                                   20      mark
                                                   20      white
   146                benefits           100      more

as it is in webfocus.

Thank you
