This is absolutely doable. Probably the best tool would be the Summary Tables task, which will let you summarize information by rows and columsn. Start with the Summary Tables wizard to set things up (much easier), then right-click on the task and select Open in Advanced View. This will bring up the Summary Tables task in a dialog interface, and from the Tables pane you can right-click on the parts of the report preview you want to change.
The document you provided doesn't look like what I am requesting. For instance in their examples they take the field of country and show countries down the left hand side and # of cases (or whatever calculation you want) in the rows with whatever timeframe/criterion that you put in the rows.
I want a different field on the left hand side so basically it would be a "page" group of countries but for Canada there would be:
(though this is just an example - I don't actually require page groups)
Is that possible in EG (because to code in ODS would probably be very laborious).
Probably need to use the Summary Tables task, rather than the wizard, to start this off. I was playing with SASHELP.CLASS since most everyone has a SASHELP library with some practice data sets like this.
Data pane: analysis variables of Age, Height, Weight. Classification variable of Sex. Notice you could have pages, if you wanted.
Summary Tables pane: this requires a little playing around with the elements in the preview... but hey, it's faster than writing the PROC TAB code. I first dragged Age, Height, Weight into the rows. Then I dragged Sex into the columns above the Sum statistic (which was automatically added as soon as I dragged over the first group). Then I dragged Sum from available statistics to the left of Age in the rows to get EG to move the statistic label into the rows. To change the rows to display things like "Total Cases", you'd just right click on the headers in the Summary Tables pane and choose heading properties to modify it.
