Create Ouput Data Sets
You can easily create output data sets from your PROC TABULATE table. The good news is that they are easy to specify. The bad news is that these data sets can be a little tricky to understand. PROC TABULATE tables can be quite complex, and these complexities are difficult to represent in a simple data set. The following code illustrates a simple PROC TABULATE table with an output data set:
PROC TABULATE DATA=TEMP OUT=TABOUT; CLASS GENDER; VAR INCOME; TABLE GENDER=' ' ALL, INCOME*(N*F=8. MEAN*F=DOLLAR8. MEDIAN*F=DOLLAR8.); RUN;
Output 19.5 shows the resulting table. As you can see, specifying the OUT= option has no effect on the table.
Output 19.5 PROC TABULATE Output Table
You can then print the new output data ...
