you can use call define statement in proc report

 

 

data have;
input id $ val;
datalines;
a .1
b .5
c .7
d 5
;




proc report nowd data=have;
   col id val; 
   compute val;
      if id in('a','b', 'c') then do;
         call define(_col_,'format','percent10.2');
      end;
   endcomp;
run;

Hi:

  You can do this in a PROC REPORT COMPUTE block. There have been many previous postings on this topic. Here's an example of the COMPUTE block if you wanted to change the format for the whole row:

compute var_b;
   if var_a in ('a', 'b', 'c') then do;
      call define(_row_,'format','percent9.2');
   end;
   else if var_a in ('d','e') then do;
      call define(_row_,'format','comma6.');
   end;
endcomp;

  If you only wanted selected columns/variables to be formatted, then the CALL DEFINE would change to:

call define('thevar','format','comma6.');

 

  Anything other than _col_ or _row_ must be quoted as the first argument in the CALL DEFINE.

 

Hope this helps,
