Re: sql or report

From your SUBJECT, it appears that you are looking for feedback on which approach to take - that being "PROC SQL or PROC REPORT"?

Of course, a DATA step approach allows ultimate flexibility, however a combination of PROC TRANSPOSE and PROC REPORT (or maybe only PROC REPORT with ACROSS, but maybe not with those desired column headings you show) would do the job.
