Re: proc sql help pls

Sorry, you can't. The MEDIAN function in SQL only works on the current row. You can do what you want with PROC MEANS.

Re: proc sql help pls

Hi:
You can create both reports and output datasets from PROC REPORT, PROC TAUBULATE and PROC MEANS. You will have to decide which one provides the structure of the output data that you desire. Sample program below makes some fake data (based on your post) and adds some regions so there are 4 regions instead of 2.
