Please follow the guidance on the page when posting a new question, post test data in the form of a datastep and what you want the output to look like, otherwise we are just guessing.

data have;
  a="{xxx }";
run;

ods rtf file="abc.rtf";
proc report data=have nowd;
  columns a;
run;
ods rtf close;

Re: ODS RTF

How are you generating your output?

Do you mean that you have numeric values that will appear in a table and that you want to enclose, possibly a range of them, in {}

such as

{123.4}?

 

You may have to provide additional information such as rules, number of decimals to display if any. The most likely approach would be a custom picture format such as shown here:

proc format library=work;
picture braces
low-high = '00009.9}' (prefix='{' );
run;


data have;
  input x;
datalines;
-123
0
234.5
;

proc print data=have;
  var x;
  format x braces.;
run;
