As we know, If you specify ORDER=DATA, the data are displayed in the same order as they occur in the input data set.  Other options for controlling order include ORDER=FORMATTED, which orders according to the formatted values, and ORDER=FREQUENCY, which orders by descending frequency count.

for me, my data is not what i expect, so the tables generate has "No" comes first beore "yes"

when i do copy and paste to the report, it is more time consuming

any advice how to change the order, so the "yes" always comes first before no, for each row, and column for each table?

Thanks.

One trick is to re-format the data.  You can put a space before the yes, so it is " yes" and leave the no as "no".  If th alignment causes you issues, you can use a non-printable character (you'll need to look at your collating sequence for that).

Consider this code snippet

 

data report;
  set raw;
  if raw_value = 'Y' then display_value = 0;
  else display_value = 1;
  run;

proc format;
  value display
    0 = 'YES' 
   1 = 'NO';
    run;

proc report data = report missing;
  column <your-columns>;
  ...
  define display_value / order = internal format = display.;
 ...
  run;

Sorry about that. I'm a PROC REPORT guy.

 

Here is a snippet using PROC FREQ instead.

 

proc freq data = report;
  format display_value display.;
  table display_value /
     missing list order=internal;
run;
