Proc Report and Proc Tabulate can both be used to create summary tables. Proc Report has the added feature of being able to create detail tables, as well. Proc Report has some of the power of a DATA step program, in that REPORT allows you to calculate a new report item (like BONUSAMT) in a COMPUTE block -- something which TABULATE will not do.

It's easier, or maybe just different, to get many crossings in the row and column dimension with TABULATE. TABULATE produces 3 dimensions of reports -- PAGE, ROW and COLUMN dimension using a TABLE statement along with a CLASS and VAR statement. REPORT does everything with a COLUMN statement and DEFINE statements, along with COMPUTE blocks.

With PROC REPORT, you can write lines between groups (such as "Good job on Sales this quarter, Department 99" or "Focus on improving sales, Department 45") with the LINE statement-- whereas with TABULATE, you cannot do this.

The following code example shows approximately the same table for both REPORT and TABULATE, the basic highlighting of PREDICT and ACTUAL is done, in this case, with a user-defined format. With PROC REPORT, you could also highlight a cell, or an entire row using the CALL DEFINE statement, too.

Question...

How do you format the ALL='Total' statement in your proc tabulate?

I have ALL='Total Congestion Revenue' but cannot figure out how to adjust the font_size. Thanks for any help. I'm sure this is a drop in a bucket for some around here. I am new to this...

Hi:
There are 2 different ways to change the ALL summary:
1) change the header for "all"
2) change the data cells for the summary

[pre]
table country * product all *{s={font_size=16pt background=yellow}},
region*Sum*(predict actual)*{s={background=salef.}}
/ style_precedence=row;
keylabel Sum='Sales'
All='Total';
keyword ALL / style={background=purple foreground=white};
[/pre]

The KEYWORD statement will change the style of the header label for ALL and the style in the table statement (crossed with ALL) will change the data cells in the summary produced by ALL. In addition, since the style crossing happens in the row dimension, you want the style of the row to take precedence over the style of the column -- for the cell where row and column intersect.
