Good day all,
i have the dataset of emp data.
its having different formats for salary variable. comma and percent format.
so i apply proc format for that.
in proc report its showing as it is. but while exporting it into excel only percentages format is applying. the comma format is missing.
after export into excel the output like this.
how to get the required output with applying comma and percentage format.
your valid comments are helps me a lot.

Try to write "2,50,111" into a cell in Excel and see if Excel accepts that as a number. My bet is, it won't (maybe depending on locale).

if there is two records then it is possible to manual entry. but when its contain thousands of records manual is not possible.
while exporting only the format is apply.

What I meant is that Excel does not regard 1,52,133 as a number, but as text. SAS therefore sends the pure value without formatting, so that the number stays a number.

BTW, if I use your format fmt. on the value 152133, it is rendered by SAS as 152,133, so I expect the locale value to play a big role in your problem.
