I am trying to create a subtotal line label in a report that includes a variable value.  My report lists accounts for a particular client, I would like to have the subtotal to read as Subtotal for John Doe.  My current code is:

compute after client_guarantor_name_group;
client_guarantor_name=catt("Subtotal of ",CLIENT_GUARANTOR_NAME_GROUP);

 

My results are as follows:

 

Acct. #ClientNet Balance
1John Doe2,500
2John Doe500
3John Doe3,000
 Subtotal of6,000
18Jane Smith450
19Jane Smith950
21Jane Smith1,000
22Jane Smith1,100
 Subtotal of3,500

 

I get the words Subtotal of, but not the client name.  Is there a way to do this?

Is your log showing anything like?:

WARNING: In a call to the CATT function, the buffer allocated for the result was not long enough
         to contain the concatenation of all the arguments. The correct result would contain 21
         characters, but the actual result might either be truncated to 8 character(s) or be
         completely blank, depending on the calling environment. The following note indicates the
         left-most argument that caused truncation.

Part of the issue could be that the defined length of your client_guarantor_name variable is too short to hold the resulting text.

 

You really need to provide the entire proc report code as orders of variables and options can interact. Also some example data in the form of a data step would allow us to actually test code with data that actually looks like yours.

 

Also any formats applied to variables can affect the result

 

Instructions here: https://communities.sas.com/t5/SAS-Communities-Library/How-to-create-a-data-step-version-of-your-dat... will show how to turn an existing SAS data set into data step code that can be pasted into a forum code box using the {i} icon or attached as text to show exactly what you have and that we can test code against.

 

 

This example modified from the documentation is similar to what you want. There are two sections to comment out that will then result in output with the undesired behavior on the summary line.

data grocery;
   /* comment out the following line to see different behavior*/
   length department $ 22;
   input Sector $ Manager $ Department $ Sales @@;

Below is my code, although this code does give me a lable.

This gets you closer:

proc report nowd data = work.test
style(summary)=[fontweight=bold backgroundcolor=aliceblue];
column Client_Name_Group Client_Name Acct_Nbr Net_Balance;
define Client_Name_Group / GROUP noprint;
define Client_Name / DISPLAY 'Client Name' style(column)={tagattr='wraptext:no' width=100%};
define Acct_Nbr / DISPLAY 'Acct. #' style(column)={tagattr='wraptext:no' width=100%};
define Net_Balance / ANALYSIS SUM 'Net Balance' style(column)={tagattr='wraptext:no' width=100%};

break after Client_Name_Group / ol skip summarize ;
rbreak after / summarize SKIP UL OL;
compute after Client_Name_Group;
Client_Name=catt('Subtotal of ',Client_Name_Group);
endcomp;

run;

 

Problems created by your current options: SUPPRESS on the Break for client_name_group means that value is not actually available.

Second you were creating a client_guarantor_name column but there is no such column displayed anywhere in your colum descriptors. I am not sure whether you actually wanted to display the subtotal in the client_name or acct_nbr column. If you want it to appear in the acct_nbr column then you likely need to make the acct_nbr field CHARACTER not numeric.

data WORK.TEST;
infile datalines;
input Client_Name_Group:$40. Client_Name:$40. Acct_Nbr:$21. Net_Balance:comma32.2;
datalines;

define Net_Balance / ANALYSIS SUM 'Net Balance' style(column)={tagattr='wraptext:no' width=100%};

HINT: values such as account numbers that you do not intend to do arithmetic with likely should be character.
