PROC TABULATE COLUMNS - LEFT RIGHT JUSTIFICATION

Hi, I'm trying to left-justify the numbers column and right-justify the percentage column. What's the best way to do that?

Here is my code using the Shoes dataset, but the alignment does not appear to change, even when I change j=l, j=c or j=r.  Thanks so much!

``````proc format;
picture paren (round)
low-high = '(009.9%)'
( prefix = '(' mult=1000);
run;

options nocenter;
proc tabulate data=sashelp.shoes FORMAT=9.0  order=formatted;
where region in ('Asia', 'Canada') and product in ('Boot');
class product region;
var sales returns stores inventory;
table (region all),
ALL * n
(sales returns inventory stores) * (sum= {label = '' s=[just=R]} mean= {label = '' s=[just=L]} * f=paren.)
;
run;``````

I am not sure why using Label that way interferes with justification but try:

```proc tabulate data=sashelp.shoes FORMAT=9.0  order=formatted;
where region in ('Asia', 'Canada') and product in ('Boot');
class product region;
var sales returns stores inventory;
table (region all),
ALL * n
(sales returns inventory stores) * (sum='' *{ s=[just=R]} mean='' *{s=[just=L]} * f=paren.)
;
run;```

You may want to make the cells for the sum wider to make the justification more noticeable.
