Proc Report help - ERROR: COMPUTED conflicts with earlier use of XXXX


In my PROC REPORT step I am using compute block to calculate % approved , % declined, % withdrawn.  I use this same logic and variable names in a second PROC REPORT step, but on a different Product for analysis.

THis is the error I am getting.

 

ERROR: COMPUTED conflicts with earlier use of XXXX

Any help resolving this error problem would be appreciated.  Thx.

Best to share your SAS program/code and also include the SASLOG in your post-reply.

Would help to have useful code, but that error suggests you are re-using a variable name, once as COMPUTED once as something else (say, ORDER or DISPLAY or GROUP or ANALYSIS or ACROSS, etc.).
