Hi,

I'm running a proc means with stats of MAX and SUM the report may look something like this:

Variable MAX SUM

var1 10 100

var2 5 72

etc.

I was wondering if it is possible to have an output data set that would append the statistic to the end of the variable name?

In this example the output data set would look similar to:

Variable Value

var1_max 10

var1_SUM 100

var2_max 5

var2_SUM 72

etc.

Thanks for your help.

Try the autoname option in your output statement with a proc transpose.

proc means data=sashelp.class noprint;

    var age height weight;

    output out=test max= sum=/autoname;

run;

You could use something like:

data have;

  input Variable $ MAX SUM;

  cards;

var1 10 100

var2 5 72

;

data want (keep=variable value);;

  set have (rename=(variable=var));

  variable=cats(var,"_MAX");

  value=max;

  output;

  variable=cats(var,"_SUM");

  value=sum;

  output;

run;
