Proc Report Group Element

Is there a way to keep proc report from skipping a group element.

For example, the script below will skip printing award_date if the previous value is the same.

proc report data=sheet3 style=mystyle split='*' ;
column award_date member_id name_last name_first fee_type
('Fee Category Breakdown' fee1 fee2 fee3 fee4 fee5 )
('Summary' owed paid pending);
define award_date/ 'Award*Date' order;
define member_id/ 'Member #' order;

Hi:
Look at this previous forum posting:

especially at the creation of the COMPUTED variable DISPREG. It would not matter if REGION was a GROUP or ORDER variable, you would use a similar technique to make your AWARD_DATE variable value repeat on every line.
