Hi,

 

I have the following code:

 

proc report data=sashelp.class ;
column 
name
('measurements' age sex height weight);
define name /'Name'  
;
run;

that produces the below output:

Zatere_0-1708432332428.png

I wondered if I could modify the output as:

Zatere_1-1708432402644.png

As you may see, I have merged the header "Name" with the cell above it.

 

Any help would much be appreciated.

 

Thanks

Hi:
PROC REPORT does not merge headers vertically, as you show in your screen shot.

Hi,

 

You could phrase it like that.

 

If possible, the end result would be like the below:

If one would do it in excel, they would just merge the two rows to put into the "Name".

Here is an example for EXCEL destination.

data table3way;
  length dmtype durationbi $15;
  infile datalines dlm=',' dsd;
  input dmtype $ ordvar Durationbi $ Num cMean cSTD LowerCL UpperCL Prob_t;
return;
datalines;
"Type 1",1,"<=10 years",17,76.76,17.85,67.59,85.94,0.7243
"Type 1",2,">10 year",44,75.30,13.06,71.32,79.27,0.7243
"Type 2",1,"<=10 years",47,67.23,22.22,44.44,88.88,0.5584
"Type 2",2,">10 year",35,69.43,33.33,55.55,99.99,0.5584
;
run;


ods excel file='c:\temp\temp.xlsx';
data _null_; 
  set table3way end=last; 
  by dmtype;
  if _N_ = 1 then do; 
      dcl odsout obj(); 
      obj.table_start(); 
      obj.head_start(); 
	  ** Header row 1;
      obj.row_start(type: "Header"); 
      obj.format_cell(text: "Type", row_span:2, column_span: 1, style_attr:"vjust=m color=black backgroundcolor=yellow fontweight=bold"); 
      obj.format_cell(text: "Results", column_span:7, style_attr:"color=black backgroundcolor=cxdddddd fontweight=bold");

      obj.head_end(); 
    end;
  ** row for every obs;
  ** treat dmtype and prob_t differently so they span rows;

      obj.row_start(); 
      obj.format_cell(data: dmtype,row_span:1, style_attr:"vjust=m fontweight=bold" ); 
      obj.format_cell(data: Durationbi, row_span:1);

Hi @Ksharp, yes, RWI is a possibility. I did not mention it because the original question did not specify what destinations in ODS they were using with their code.
