Re: Is there a way to suppress missing value indicators in PROC REPORT output?

Hi:

  Do you mean the . dot or period for missing values. Try one of the the following option statements before your PROC REPORT step:

options missing=' '; (quote-blank-quote will represent missing as blank in the output results)

options missing=0; (will represent the missing as a 0 in the output results)

options missing='-'; (will represent the missing as a hyphen in the output results)

options missing='!'; (will represent the missing as an exclamation point in the output results)

  You get the idea. You can specify a single character which will replace the normal missing or dot in output results. After your PROC REPORT step, you will want to return your missing value to . again with this statement:

options missing=.;
