Subject: Proc Report
The Proc Report 'Define' Stm has an option called 'NOZERO'
that can be used to suppress the printing of columns that are
composed entirely of zero or missing data. Our manuals tell
us that there is also a 'SHOW ALL' command that would
print columns, even those entirely composed of zero or missing
values. It seems, however, that there is a disconnect b/w
NOZERO and SHOWALL--- the NOZERO option pertains
to a specific column but the SHOWALL parameter pertains
to the entire table (right???).
Is there a column-specific reverse command for 'NOZERO'?
Our problem is that we need to have some columns suppressed
(that are used for ordering the data) but we also to display
columns (for some small groups) are entirely zero-valued. Proc
Report suppresses the zero-valued columns (in an attempt to
help us, I guess).
