PROC TRANSPOSE works pretty good,

data test1; input id1 id2 fact $; cards; 1 11 A 2 12 C 2 13 A 2 14 C 3 15 B 3 16 C 4 17 D ; run;

proc sort data=test1 out=test2; by id1; run;

proc transpose data=test2 out=test3(drop=_name_) prefix=fact; by id1; var fact; run;

Hope this is helpful, Mark Terjeson Washington State Department of Social and Health Services Division of Research and Data Analysis (RDA) (253) 840-2800 (253) 840-3566 fax (360) 902-0741 (360) 902-0705 fax mailto:terjemw@dshs.wa.gov

I know there is a sample code somewhere, but I couldn't find it. Here is my dataset(id2 is unique in the dataset):

id1 id2 fact 1 11 A 2 12 C 2 13 A 2 14 C 3 15 B 3 16 C 4 17 D ........

I want the dataset change to like this: id1 fact1 fact2 fact3.... 1 A 2 C A C 3 B C 4 D .............

Does somebody know how to do that?
