Ordering SQL output and formatting

Hi,

 

I have the following code. 

proc sql;
select 'A' label='Variable',
 (select sum(A) from have) as All,
 (select sum(A) from have where SCHTYPE='PUBLIC') as Public,
 (select sum(A) from have where SCHTYPE='PRIVATE') as Private
from have(obs=1)
union 
select 'B' label='Variable',
 (select sum(B)from have) as All,
 (select sum(B)from have where SCHTYPE='PUBLIC') as Public,
 (select sum(B)from have where SCHTYPE='PRIVATE') as Private
from have(obs=1)
union
select 'C' label='Variable',
 (select sum(C) from have) as All,
 (select sum(C) from have where SCHTYPE='PUBLIC') as Public,
 (select sum(C) from have where SCHTYPE='PRIVATE') as Private
from have(obs=1)
union 
select 'D' label='Variable',
 (select sum(D)from have) as All,
 (select sum(D)from have where SCHTYPE='PUBLIC') as Public,
 (select sum(D)from have where SCHTYPE='PRIVATE') as Private
from have(obs=1)
union
select 'A/B' label='Variable',
 (select sum(A)/sum(B) from have) as All format=percent7.2, 
 (select sum(A)/sum(B)  from have where SCHTYPE='PUBLIC') as Public format=percent7.2,
 (select sum(A)/sum(B)  from have where SCHTYPE='PRIVATE') as Private format=percent7.2
from have(obs=1)
union 
select 'C/D' label='Variable',
  (select sum(C)/sum(D) from have) as All format=percent7.2,
 (select sum(C)/sum(D)  from have where SCHTYPE='PUBLIC') as Public format=percent7.2,
 (select sum(C)/sum(D)  from have where SCHTYPE='PRIVATE') as Private format=percent7.2
from have(obs=1)

;
quit;

I am getting the following output but need two things different:

 

 

1)Order of rows to be:

A

B

C

A/B

C/E

 

2) The values of A/B and C/E to be rounded to the nearest tenth of a percent. 

 

How do I do that?  Thanks!

 

Variable All Public Private
A 9398 2758 5281
A/B 25.19571 15.85057 31.43452
B 373 174 168
C 9771 2932 5449
C/D 7.52194 18.44025 8.662957
D 1299 159

629

Re: Ordering SQL output and formatting

Since this doesn't have a common order, ie alphabetical or numerical, you'll have to manually order it. This means creating another variable that will have the order you want that's either alphabetical or numerical and you can then sort accordingly.
