proc report display columns per line.


I have 13 variables which are making column and when I am displaying them using the proc report these all 13 variables comes in single row is there any way to break these columns so for example 4 column/variable on 1st line than 3 on each line?

Perhaps some test data, required output would illustrate your point better.  If you just want some vars on different page, then I would usually have two proc report statements - means i can change all the different bits for each one.

Check Option ID PAGE

proc report data=sashelp.class nowd;

columns name sex age;

define name/display;

define sex/display id ;

define age/display page;

Hi:

  I think ID and PAGE are best demonstrated with a "wider" report. And, the destination of interest (RTF, PDF, HTML) will make a difference. For example, in this paper that I co-authored with Scott Huntley, there is an example of ID and PAGE using SASHELP.CARS that gives an idea of what the options do in PROC REPORT. http://support.sas.com/resources/papers/proceedings14/SAS038-2014.pdf (pages 14/15)
