Here was the original intent (plus the nonworking program):

VARIABLE A B C ------------------------------------------------- 001 3 0 0 002 1 2 0 003 1 1 1 004 0 2 1 005 0 0 3

DATA ALPH_IN; INPUT (A1-A5) ($CHAR1.); CARDS; AAABC ABBBC ABCCC ; PROC FREQ DATA=ALPH_IN; TABLES A1-A5/OUT=FREQOUT; PROC PRINT DATA=FREQOUT; /* only A5 in the output file */ RUN;

If you have control over your incoming data, here is a simple method (untested):

DATA ALPH_IN; Do Variable=1 to 5; INPUT @Variable A $char1. @; output; end; CARDS; AAABC ABBBC ABCCC ;

PROC FREQ DATA=ALPH_IN; TABLES Variable*A; format variable z3.; RUN;

Of course, if you want to make an output data set you could ... but it would not contain cells with a count of zero (at least not in version 6 of the software).

Good luck.

Bob V.
