How can I create this table in the output?

Hi guys,

I'm currently using the following code to calculate averages by symbol:

------

proc means mean data=price_impact;

VAR price;

by symbol;

run;

quit;

---------


It gives me the means that I'm looking for however it puts each mean for each symbol n its own table; therefore, it's impossible for me to copy paste each result into excel.  If i could have all of the means listed in one table, I could just copy paste the entire table into Excel.  Can someone please give me a code to do that?  Thanks in advance, much appreciated.

Add an output statement and check the avg_price dataset for what you want. Then you can export that dataset to Excel

proc means mean data=price_impact;

VAR price;

by symbol;

output out=avg_price mean(price)=average_price;

run;

or use

CLASS SYMBOL; instead of BY.
