I have a column that has text in each row. I was assigned to find the mode of this column by my manager. I have never heard of mode in this respects so i'm not sure how I would calculate it in sas. Any help would be great appreciated.

Thank you for your help I will try that out. Is there a proc that can give me mean, median and mode all at once? If not what would be the best approach to calcualte mean and median?
Thank you so much

For a text variable?
I don't know how mean or median for those would be applicable.
Mode makes some sort of sense to find the most frequent comment or word.
For numeric variables, use proc means/summary/univariate.

In three ways you can calculate mean, mode and median of numeric variable.
1) Proc menas data=<dataset_name> mean mode median;
2) Proc summary data=<dataset_name> print mean mode median;
3) ODS select basicmeasures;
Proc univariate data=<dataset_name>;
