FORMAT : DECIMALS

How can I get my output to have consistent decimals? I've first rounded to the nearest hundredth, which gives me numbers that are whole (89) and also numbers that are to the nearest hundredth (67.92). How do I get the whole numbers to read to the nearest hundredth, i.e., how do I get 89 to read 89.00?

I tried this but nothing happened:

proc print data=ka.sorted;
format percent_p w.d;
run;

Thanks!

try
[pre]
format percent_p 5.2;
[/pre]
Also, it is unnecessary to round the number first. SAS will do it for you when it writes the number in the format.
