PROC Tabulate can be a very powerful tool for creating professional looking tables. Also PROC Tabulate is compatible with multilabel formats, making it possible to create hierarchical tables with groups and sub-groups. However, the syntax for PROC Tabulate is not particularly intuitive, so many programmers tend to shy away from it.

The purpose of this hands-on workshop is to acquaint users with the basics of PROC Tabulate syntax. By the end of this course, you will know how to create a basic table, use formats in your table, change headers and data labels, add row and column totals, and implement basic statistics. The course will also cover the basics of PROC format and how to use multilabel formats with PROC Tabulate.

By the end of the course attendees will have an understanding of:
• How to create a basic table
• How to use formats, including multilabel formats
• How to change headers and data labels
• How to add row and column totals
• How to implement basic statistics
