SAS create a table with a loop

Dear all, 


I just started to learn and use SAS… I’am currently facing a problem and hope someone would be able to help me. 


I have a database of the following form :

What I would like is to create a table that will contains the number of observation per group. So something like :

I am trying to work with a loop that will complete progressively the table but after many trials i am unable to do so… Does someone has an idea ? 


Thank you very much

Proc summary is nice to use for such situations. e.g.,


proc summary data=have nway;
  class model;
  var option1-option3;
  output out=want (drop=_Smiley Happy sum=;

An other way to do the same, is create the summary with SQL.



  create table summary as(

    select model, sum(option1) as option1, sum(option2) as option2, sum(option3) as option3

    from have

    group by model  /*This option make the sum by model*/
