How to paste data in table form in this sas community?

Dear all, I want to sometimes paste sample data in table format rather than attach excel documents when I post questions? Anyone could tell me how? Thanks a lot

Use the {i} button above and post your sample data in the form of a data step such as

 

data MyData;
input ID$ var1 var2;
datalines;
1 1 2
2 3 4
3 5 6
4 7 8
5 9 1

@ballardw I could not find the row of things that start with B I U and so forth. I don't know why. I attached a picture of the message window pdf format in the attachment. Is my message window the same as yours? Thanks

Which browser are you using? I suspect a browser setting or similar. See my screen shot:

Try opening a ticket with SAS support so they can work with you on why the editor features are not working on your machine.

Can you post your operating system version and browser version?

It is NOT a "button". Inside the message window  that I am currently typing into at the top is a row of things that start with

 

B U and so forth. The {I} is one of the things on that row.

@ballardw Thank you so much for your help! I tried google, firefox and ie, but still appears the same as the picture I attached in the pdf document last time. Maybe I need to change settings, but I don't know where to change.Thank you so much!

Hi @owenwqp1, I see that you're in China.  We do have other users in China, but it might be that some of the features are getting blocked by your ISP.  Can you open your browser console (usually F12 to view) and report the errors you see in the browser console log?  I'm guessing that there will be a few.  This will allow us to see which scripts aren't being loaded, and thus crippling some features of the site for you.

@ChrisHemedinger Hi ChrisHemedinger, I have a look of the console log of my Chrome browser. There are 9 errors and 2 warnings.I attached two txt doc of the errors and warnings.One is the errors and warnings I copied one by one from the window,which I consider more readable. The other one is the directly saved log. Thank you so much for your help! Best regards!
