# Formatting 2X2 Crosstabulation

Looking for a way to format the following output so that the column percents show up with zero decimal places:

proc freq data = CombineScoredTemp;

tables _node_ * Bin_SLR

/nopercent norow nofreq;

run;

Of course I could copy & paste it into Excel. Then format it. Then I would want more decimal places.

Also, is there a way to output these column percents so that a % shows up with the numbers?

Thank you very much in advance.

## Re: Formatting 2X2 Crosstabulation

Consider using Proc TABULATE insted which gives you many more formating options than Proc FREQ.

Compare the reports produced by the following two sample codes:

1. Using Proc FREQ:

proc freq data=sashelp.class;

tables age*sex / nopercent norow nofreq;

run;

2. Using Proc FORMAT ans Proc TABULATE:

proc format;

picture pctfmt low-high='009.99 %';

run;

proc tabulate data=sashelp.class format=10.;

class age sex;

table age all , sex*colpctn*F=pctfmt10.;

keylabel all='Total' colpctn='Col Pct';

run;
