Rather than kill yourself trying to get all the macro variables and ODS
the way you need them, have you considered using INPUT() or PUT()
[whichever is appropriate] to format EST as a new, already-properly-
formatted variable EST2 and then using *that* in your by statement?
That might be a lot easier.
