Supressing Percent in Proc Freq

Hi,

i want my proc freq only to do counts and not percent.

so what i did was

PROC FREQ DATA=TEMP ORDER=FREQ NOPRINT;

TABLES X * Y / NOPERCENT OUT=TEMP2;

RUN;

but even though i mention no percent my out put is showing

X           Y                    COUNT        PERCENT

abc       123                    2                40

I don't want the percent to be calculated.

Am i doing any thing wrong or is there any other option i have to use to suppress it.

If you don't want it in the output file, you can always just drop it.  e.g.,

PROC FREQ DATA=sashelp.class ORDER=FREQ NOPRINT;

TABLES age * sex / OUT=TEMP2 (drop=percent);

RUN;

Supressing Percent in Proc Freq

The ODS tables don't give the percent but they give a bunch of other columns that are probably just as useless, so dropping is your best option.

proc freq data=sashelp.class;

    tables sex*age/ nopercent nocol norow out=temp2;

    ods output crosstabfreqs=temp3;

run;
