Converting negative zero values to absolute zero

When I use proc means on my data, actual mean and median values are  -0.00001 or -0.00004 and when I try to present in 2 decimal places, values are showing as -0.00 in my reports. However, instead of -0.00 in my final report, I want to present it as 0.00. Is there are sas function or any tips on resolving my issue.

 

Thanks very much.

There's the absolute value function ABS.

 

Or you can just use an assign statement to set numbers close to zero to equal exactly zero.
