This should be pretty much straightforward but I can't get it work even after reading through the documentation...

```
/*save the var1 freq table*/
proc freq data=have order=freq ;
output out=var1_freq;
tables var1/list missing;
run;
/*save the two freq tables*/
proc freq data=have order=freq ;
output out=var1_freq var1var2_freq;
tables var1 var1*var2/list missing;
run;
```

Read the warnings in your log. Always.

They state that a statistic is required.

OUT on the TABLES statement is used to capture the frequencies.

OUTPUT statement is used to capture test statistics.

ODS OUTPUT is a different way to keep the counts.

See the example below.

Proc freq data=SASHELP.class;

tables sex / out = freqs chisq;

output out= stats chisq;

ODS onewayFreq= frreqs2;

run;

But it seems that the output doesn't include the cumulative frequency and cumulative percent. Is it possible to get these variables as well?

RTM for the options on the TABLES statement that control the output.
