Is there a way to remove blank columns from a proc report? Essentially I want to remove any blank column since that is a combination that does not exist.
proc report nowindows data=mgp_Mean_Merge (where=(Matrix='Soil')) spanrows nowd; columns timepoint Temperature ( 'Mean (Stdev, Percent Detected)' SBvalue,sample_org,moisture,bead); define timepoint / group order=internal style(column)=[vjust=m just=l] format=timepoint. 'Timepoint'; define Temperature / group order=internal format=temp. 'Temperature'; define sample_org / across ''; define moisture / across '' format=wetdry.; define bead / across ''; define SBvalue / group ''; run;

If you don't want them in your report then drop those variables (variables with all missing values) before running the proc report.
Check this solution to drop variables with null values; https://communities.sas.com/t5/SAS-Procedures/Dropping-variables-with-null-values/td-p/185892

You might consider moving to proc tabulate as nested column/row combinations by default only have populated ones in the output assuming none of the records are actually missing the group or across variables (class in Tabulate)
Since you don't show what variable is actually analyzed I can't get more specific than that
