alternating line shading in ODS output for PROC Tabulate

Hi Folks,

I know how to do it for PROC Report, but I'm not quite sure how to translate it to Tabulate. To enhance readability, I'd like to alternate the shading of the rows of my report based on my main class variable. Picture a "greenbar" report, I guess, only using gray and white instead of green and white.

Any suggestions? Thanks!

The expressive power of REPORT becomes apparent when you try to do alternating row colors in TABULATE. It's possible for
some tables, but complicated. The solution is to use traffic lighting of row headers combined with the style parenting syntax . Here's an example:
[pre]
options nocenter;

ods html body="band.html"; ods listing close;

title;

data;
input region $ citysize $ pop product $ saletype $
quantity amount;
cards;
