Hi,

 

Any update on this?

 

Thanks David


Please post a small example of the input and what you want as output with an explanation of what the output means.  Either post the data in the form of a data step, or take the time to make an example using one of the available datasets in SASHELP library.  Like SASHELP.CLASS, a small dataset with both numeric and character variables.

the output I am getting...

                             14  
                                 
                      =========  
                             23  

 

and I expected   the list of RPLYQM will list in "order=freq descending" on Frequency.

 

So I want to get output likes this.

WCCPLX14 for 10/29 should be first in the list because it has two occurrences.

Hi,

 

I have provided all the information you have requested.   Are you still waiting on more information to determine this root cause of this issue?

 

Thanks David

You appear to be trying to ask PROC REPORT to sort a column based on the value of a different column. And worse one that doesn't exist yet.

 

Just count first and then report.

Hi,

 

I understand that you have provided alternate solution for my request.  But I still would like to get example on how to use order=freq to solve my request. 

 

Thanks David
