Hi Team,


I have used a cross-tab in SAS WRS, and report is showing many null values associated against each row in cross-tab table.


In web report studio, it is showing a "." for null value.


It is very strange, can I change any setting to change it so that null value shows "0" (zero) rather than "."(Period).


SAS WRS Report is using informationMap as an source.

I don't use WRS but generally the appearance for missing values is set with the OPTION MISSING. Option missing='0' ; would generally display all missing values as 0 until the option is changed.


Some specific procedures such as Proc Tabulate has a misstext=' ' option for each table to display any desired text when a missing value would appear.


Another option is to use custom formats that display missing as 0.


Some approaches may be more robust for your specific output. How are you creating your cross table?

I am aware to use missing =0 option in SAS but unfortunately we can not use the same with SAS WRS.

I am sorry this answer is late. Can you use the suggestion in this SAS Note to get the results you are looking for?

Hi there,


in a cross table, this isn't an option. This field cannot be selected then in the cross table. 

I have the same issue and I'm still looking for an answer. Is there somebody who knows the solution?
