Subject: Re: Unix Viewtable
I am relieved that it wasn't just me myself alone that has been troubled by
this "new" feature of SAS(I don't remember v6, v7, even earlier versions of
v8 that displays the table's label by default). Output tables from proc
freq and means also have extranous labels such "frequency and count ...".
I am hoping someone from SI is reading this thread and change the settings
There was a round of dicussions in OCT2007 on the same topic. If you
search the archives using "VIEWTABLE", you will find them. The solutions
1. (extra coding effort): proc freq ; table this / out=out1(label=' ');
2. VT &SYSLAST.(label="&SYSLAST.") (see post#347388, by Richard D)
3. A macro solution that will delete all table labels in the WORK library
with a single function key stroke(post#347405)
