Results Table with blanks?

Hello,

I'm using PROC SURVEYFREQ in SAS EG, but when the results come through I'm getting blank cells next to the respond options. What am I doing wrong?

(in the first column of the 2nd table, under 'REGSAM' I would expect the various response options, in this case 1,2,3...)

Regards

Change it to something with smaller W best3. perhaps.  or just remove it completly.  In your proc step add FORMAT regsam;

What is the FORMAT associated with REGSAM?

Bingo - thank you for your help. I guess then that there were effectivly 11 spaces after the single digits, pushing them out of view?

actually more like trying to right justify 12 characters in space for fewer though I haven't seen this happen in BASE SAS so it may be an EG thing with different display characteristics.
