I am not having much luck applying a format to a specific value in a column in PROC REPORT. In my case, I have different metrics that have different forms (some are percentages, for example, and others are dollar values).
However, when I run the following code, my dollar figures are in the form $XXXXXXXXX.XX. I seem to be missing something, and I can't seem to find an answer in the documentation. (I get the same error when I try to apply the format in PROC PRINT, by the way).
proc report nowd data=work.bot_test4; column metrics combined_value source; compute combined_value; if substr(metrics, 1, 1)= "$" then do; call define(_col_,'format','Dollar14.2'); end; endcomp; run;
