Hi,

I need a user defined format and I never used PROC Format before and I am a bit lost here.

 

I need a format like this:

 

Input Value: 0.571

Output Value: +/+ 57,1%

 

Input Value: -1.3

Output Value: -/- 130%

 

This is what I got so far:

 

Data numbers;
input values;
cards;
0.1119
0.2119
0.57119
-0.5134
2
40
-5
;
run;

proc format;

picture advperc
low -< 0 = '99.99 %' (prefix='-/- ' mult=10000)
0 - high = '99.99 %' (prefix='+/+ ' mult=10000);
run;

proc print data = numbers;
format values advperc.;
run;

 

I m not quite there yet. The last 3 lines are not right.

 

Thank you in advance

Dirk

Thank you!

 

I had to add another 0 and it is working now:

 

1 - high = '000000 %' (prefix='+/+ ' mult=10000);

 

 

 

Best regards

I just noticed that the positive numbers arent correct.

2 should be 200, 40 is 40000 and so on.

I don't understand.

200=2*100    ,whereas    40000=40*1000

I had a typo, 

 

2 = 200, 40 = 4000

 

Your first output gave me

I think you should multiply 100 not 10000.
