I am wondering if there aren't people with a higher level of skill/
experience with SAS at your institution who might be able to help
you? One of the challenges here on SAS-L is that we don't see the
data, or code, from which you are working. And, you probably don't
want to post it out on a site like this for confidentiality reasons.
There are a number of ways to potentially solve your problem, include
SAS reporting tools (PROC REPORT and PROC TABLULATE), as well as some
other approaches involving creating data sets and merging them
Also, if I am not mistaken, you are affiliated with St Mary's in
Baltimore, MD. You may want to take the MARC train down to DC on
December 8th for the DC SAS users group meeting. It's right across
the street from Union Station at the Bureau of Labor Statistics. See
www.dc-sug.org for details.
