# Insert a Row at the end of the data with totals

Hello everyone!  Is there any way to insert a row at the end of the data set with the totals? Here it is a sample data:

 DATA COUNT DATA 1 23 DATA 2 35 DATA 3 27 DATA 4 24 DATA 5 25 DATA 6 22 DATA 7 29

And here it is what I want to do:

 DATA COUNT DATA 1 23 DATA 2 35 DATA 3 27 DATA 4 24 DATA 5 25 DATA 6 22 DATA 7 29 Total 185

I will appreciate any kind of help!

Greetings,

Milenko

Editor's Note:  Thanks everyone for all of the answers.  The SQL one works well.  This solution gives a little more flexibility for the number of variables that need to be summed and inserting text for the summary row.

Using PROC SUMMARY to generate the total row is the most "SAS like" way to do it.

If you want to put the string "TOTAL" into one of your character variables so that you can tell which row is the total and which rows are the real data then you would need to add some extra code.

For example if we assume that SASHELP.CLASS is your input data then these two steps will generate a new dataset named WANT with the totals appended.

proc means noprint data=sashelp.class ;

output out=summary sum=;

run;

data want ;

set sashelp.class summary (in=in2);

if in2 then name='TOTAL';

run;

## Re: Insert a Row at the end of the data with totals

One example:

data have;

input var \$ COUNT;

cards;

DATA1 23

DATA2 35

DATA3 27

DATA4 24

DATA5 25

DATA6 22

DATA7 29

;

data want;

set have end=last;

_ct+count;

output;

if last then

do;

var='Total';

Count=_CT;

output;

end;

drop _ct;

run;

Hai.Kuo! Thank you very much for your answer. Im new in using SAS, so i dont understand very well the code that you are giving me. I foyu could walk me a bit, it would great! I do know what you mean with data want and data have, but the rest is not really understandable for my level of knowledge, which is pretty basic. In any case, I really appreciate for your help!

## Re: Insert a Row at the end of the data with totals

slchen! Thank you for your answer! Im new in using SAS, and I know very little, I tried your code, and it didnt work...it says that the Ttotal, sum columns dont exist, and that the sum functions needs a numeric value. Here it is the code that Im using:

data WORK.FILA_FINAL_COUNT;

set WORK.query_for_query_final;

run;

proc sql;

insert into WORK.FILA_FINAL_COUNT

select Ttotal as data,sum(C) as count from WORK.query_for_query_final;

quit;

It would be great if you could tell me what Im doing worng.

Greetings, and thanks again!

Sorry to miss a double quote for "Total";

data WORK.FILA_FINAL_COUNT;

set WORK.query_for_query_final;

run;

proc sql;

insert into WORK.FILA_FINAL_COUNT

select "Total" as data,sum(C) as count from WORK.query_for_query_final;

quit;

## Re: Insert a Row at the end of the data with totals

slchen, Thank you again! I tried the code and it still has problems with the C parameter:

ERROR: The SUM summary function requires a numeric argument.

ERROR: The following columns were not found in the contributing tables: C

Could you help me with this error, please!

Greetings!

## Re: Insert a Row at the end of the data with totals

slchen,

Your code worked great! Thanks! But I have one more doubt. Is there a way to modify your code in order to count more than one column? I mean, becuase I have three more columns with numbers and I want to have a row in the end with the totals of each one of those columns. Can it be done?

Why?

If it is just for a report then just have the report generate the totals.

PROC PRINT ...;

VAR DATA COUNT ;

SUM COUNT;

RUN:

You can use PROC SUMMARY (means) to generate totals and PROC APPEND to attach to an existing file.

data class;

set sashelp.class ;

run;

proc means noprint data=class ;

output out=summary sum=;

run;

proc append data=summary base=class force;

run;

proc print data=class ;

run;

## Re: Insert a Row at the end of the data with totals

Hey Tom! Thank you so much again! It is really helpful! I tried your code and it worked! But im almost there. The result that I get is this:

 DATA COUNT _TYPE_ _FREQ_ name DATA 1 23 DATA 2 35 DATA 3 27 DATA 4 24 DATA 5 25 DATA 6 22 DATA 7 29 - 185 0 7 Total

And the result that Im looking foward is this:

 DATA COUNT DATA 1 23 DATA 2 35 DATA 3 27 DATA 4 24 DATA 5 25 DATA 6 22 DATA 7 29 Total 185

Is there a way to tweak your code to make it happen?

In any case you already have helped me a lot! Thank you!

Greetings!

## Re: Insert a Row at the end of the data with totals

The extra variables _TYPE_ and _FREQ_ are generated by PROC MEANS.  You can remove them with a DROP statement.

The extra variable NAME is because you did not adjust the program to match the variables in your dataset.  From your output you want to assign 'Total' to the variable DATA instead of the variable NAME.
