Proc Means help

I calculated the sum of all the variables using proc means and not sure how to  combine them with the main dataset.

 

Given dataset T

ID  var1 var2 var3
1  20      30     52
2  80    20     65
3  42    95     25

 

Want dataset:

ID  var1  var2  var3
1    20    30     52
2    80   20     65
3   42    95    25
Tot 142 145 142

 

OUTPUT FROM PROC MEANS

Obs _TYPE_ _FR   VAR1 VAR2 VAR3                
103142145142        

 

 

I want to join the sum from proc means to the main dataset T.

That's not really a good idea. If you want totals, you should use a reporting procedure such as PROC PRINT or PROC REPORT or TABULATE. It's too easy to mix up the totals with the data later on. 

 

Anyways, just append the data in, if you used the same variable names. If not, you need to rename them to match and append it.

 

data want;

set have totals;

run;
