# Use a formula in a TITLE statement

I am trying to create a table using the following code using SAS 9.4.  The parameter value &rptyr is a four-character integer (representing the year of the report).  I would like TITLE3 to provide the following result, and the code I am using below is only the most recent of several unsuccessful approaches at achieving this result:

Race and Gender Breakdown of All Students from Fall 2015 to Spring 2016

``````proc tabulate data=srkdemog_ath out=srkdemog_all;
var athlete;
class state campus_code campus_desc ethnicity gender bid;
table all='College' ethnicity='' gender='',
(all='College' state=''*campus_code='Campus'*campus_desc='')*athlete=''*n='Total'*f=comma8.;
title 'Student Right-to-Know Graduation Rate';
title2 'Student Athletes';
title3 "Race and Gender Breakdown of All Students from Fall %sysfunc(put(&rptyr-1,4.)) to Spring &rptyr";
run;``````

Any assistance towards achieving this goal would be welcome.  Thank you.

Marc

%EVAL instead of PUT and SYSFUNC?

%SYSFUNC does not support the PUT function.  You can switch to the PUTN function instead.  Once you do that, you may have to experiment with the third parameter (it may need to go in quotes).

I tried this as well, since you took the time to answer, and using PUTN instead of PUT also worked, so thank you!
