I asked for this capability in PROC REPORT a while back; apparently
there's not enough perceived demand to warrant the programming effort.
If you want it, send mail to email@example.com.

I find that I frequently need to set the width of each
character variable manually when using proc report. I usually set it
a value that is equal to max(the longest word in the label, the length
of the longest data value). Setting the width for each variable
very tedious when I have to create several reports with many variables
each. I read in the help files that proc report will automatically
the column width to accommodate the format of the variable. So what I
need is a macro that will set the format of each variable to max(the
longest word in the label, the length of the longest data value).
anyone out there have a macro that does this? Or does anyone have a
different solution to the problem. TIA
