ods output format

Hi,

I submit my a program in sas 9.2 to a server, in order to minimise time runing. this program contain a Glm procedure. I used the ods output to keep only some measures like this :
ODS output CLDiffs=Diff(keep = Comparison LowerCL Difference UpperCL Significance);
proc glm data=table;
class var1 var2;
model var3=var1 var2 / ss3;
MEANS var3 / lsd cldiff lines;
run;quit;
ods output close;


My problem is that "comparison" is forced to be written in an $5. format. This is a problem to me, because comparison contains more than 5 characters.


When I run my program on my computer, there is no problem comparison is not limited to 5 characters.


I wonder if someone can help me to know why this problem occurs !

thanks

Re: ods output format

Hi,
The table template for your output object is usually what controls the formats and labels of the output created by the ODS OUTPUT statement.

If you search on support.sas.com for examples of altering the table template for a STAT procedure you should find some examples that suit your purpose.
