Using Proc Tabulate in SAS


i have the following code that I am using for a Proc Tabulate:

          CLASS  EDIT;
      TABLE n(EDIT);

My question is the results go across.  Is there a way to have the results which show the number of edits within each edit to go down so it is esier to read.

Hi there Morinia,

The table statement gives details of

 (pages) , (rows) , (columns)

Note separated by commas.

You can leave dimensions off from the front, so you can not name (pages) for
a (row) and (column layout).

As well you can omit the first 2 dimensions and just name columns.

What is required in your case is to just name the rows, which isnt possible,

However you could specify the row dimension and provide a dummy
column dimension.

Try ,

          ALL='Number of edits';

Open in new window


        N='Number of edits';

Open in new window

or other similar construct.


There are other ways of getting what you want.  For instance you could use
the OUT= <new dataset name> statement on the PROC TABULATE line, and
just PROC PRINT the resultant dataset, maybe after a PROC TRANSPOSE
depending on what you want.


Hope this is the pointer you require.
