Proc Distance

I used Proc Distance to find the distance between 20 variables but it only gave me the bottom half. I know the top half will be symmetric but is there a way to get that? I used ANOMINAL(var1--var20); BY var21; format but it gave me the bottom half of the table and blank values above the diagonal row of zeros.

Re: Proc Distance

[pre]
SHAPE= TRIANGLE | TRI
SHAPE= SQUARE | SQU | SQR

specifies the shape of the proximity matrix to be stored in the OUT= data set.
SHAPE= TRIANGLE requests the matrix to be stored as a lower triangular matrix;
SHAPE= SQUARE requests the matrix to be stored as a squared matrix. Use
SHAPE= SQUARE if the output data set is to be used as input to the
MODECLUS procedures. The default is TRIANGLE.
