Please let me know how to do this "data manipulation"


Nothing statistics here.

I have a table which is a similaroty matrix, and it looks like this,

abc
a10.80.7
b0.810.2
c0.70.21

I was hoping to do the following,

and let tables become either

Header 1aabbcc
a1a0.8b0.7c
b0.8a1b0.2c
c0.7a0.2b1c

or the transpose of it, doesn't matter.

Header 1ab
a10.8
aaa
b0.81
bbb

As long as I have the original table by row or by column,

seperated by one colume which is fullfilled by the "previous" column name or rowname.

Please let me know how to do this.  Thank you very much.

Does the value for the text versions of a b and c ever change?

If the data in the start table you presented is in a dataset foes this do what you need?

data want;

     set have;

     a_str = 'a';

     b_str = 'b';

     c_str = 'c';

     label a_str = 'a'

             b_str = 'b'

             c_str = 'c'

    ;

run;

proc print data= want noobs label;

     var a a_str b b_str c c_str;

run;
