listings help

Hi

I need  to create a listings. And trying to do it with proc report.  is there anyway I can create a common Heading called 'Date' and under Date I have three columns(variables). Basically it should look like this: Is this possible in proc report?

 

                                                      Date

                                 Birthdate          Rficdtc       Incdat

 

Hope it is understandable.

 

Thanks

Rashmi.

Yes its possible, usually use the option ACROSS within the DEFINE statement.

Vague questions get vague answers. If you need more help, post more details.

A small example:

 

proc report data=sashelp.cars;
where make="Acura";
columns model ("Miles per Gallon" MPG_City MPG_Highway);
define model / format=$24.;
define MPG_City / "City";
define MPG_Highway / "Highway";
run;
                                               Miles per Gallon
                   Model                          City    Highway
                    MDX                             17         23
                    RSX Type S 2dr                  24         31
                    TSX 4dr                         22         29
                    TL 4dr                          20         28
                    3.5 RL 4dr                      18         24
                    3.5 RL w/Navigation 4dr         18         24
                    NSX coupe 2dr manual S          17         24

The expression in parentheses in the columns statement does it.
