Very interesting papers!

Some (very simple) remarks anyway in short:

tabulate is a possibility to report statistical relations between

variables in up to three dimensions (rows, columns, pages). You don't have

too many possibilities to influence single cells, rows, columns, pages and

not too much on the layout. The things you influence are alsways related

to whole dimensions. If you want to have something like calculated

columns, e.g. one is the difference of the 3 left of it, not possible. If

you want to do it anyway, it's getting difficult.

The main goal is to present summarized data-values in cells.

report mainly is a listing procedure. Very strong features to influence

the layout, also with ordering and grouping. The simplest form of a REPORT

output is not a table, but a list, where the results of statistics is

presenten in SUMMARY lines while the other lines contain the details.

In addition, you HAVE influence on singel cells, rows, columns. You CAN

relate columns and have calculated columns of them which are left of the

new one. Cou can have influence on all rows with a DATA-step like

programming language and you can influence single cells with that. E.g.

a "traffic-lighting" dependant on certain limits is possible.

A very nice feature of PROC REPORT is the code-generator "behind" the

interactive mode. With that thing you can generate a big part of your

report layout without programming anything. That's very comfortable in

comp. to PROC TABULATE which is not always easy to program.

I've found the combination of PROC SUMMARY to summarize the data and PROC

REPORT to present them as very handy and good for most of needs, but

REPORT is not a replacement for TABULATE (ok, you might not need PROC

PRINT any more because REPORT can do everything and much more, but

TABULATE has some other goals...)

1. Help with Proc Tabulate - how would u do it using proc report?

2. Difference in using proc tabulate and proc mean to compute median?

Hello,

I have a large number of data and need to find the median.

I tried proc tabulate and received a WARNING: A shortage of memory has

caused the quantile computations to terminate prematurely ...

However, when I used proc mean to compute the median it can complete

without problems. So I guess my questions are 1) why proc tabulate

gives a warning while proc mean is ok, 2) if both proc works, do they

give the same result?

Thank you!
