I have pre/post data for one group - outcome is a score. I am interested to see if the scores vary by a covariate like gender. If I use the by command in the ttest procedure, it does not give me a significant p value for differences by gender. how can i go about doing this?

So would be outcome variable be the difference? And my independent would be gender, but do I need to adjust for baseline (pre) scores as well?

Pre-calculate the differences and test if the difference is different between the groups and not equal to 0.
ie Mean from Group A = Mean from Group B = Mean from Group = 0
where mean = post-pre score

Also, BY statements splits an analysis for each group. It's the equivalent of doing some repeatedly for each group but they're considered individually. Analyses do not cross between BY groups.
