Rachel,

By tabulated data, I assume that you mean that you have the
frequencies in each cell of the table. You can still use proc
freq with the chisq option. You would table the two variables
which form the contingency table, and weight each observation by
the tabulated frequency. This is demonstrated below:

data test;
x=1; y=1; n=40; output;
x=2; y=1; n=60; output;
x=1; y=2; n=30; output;
x=2; y=2; n=70; output;
run;

proc freq data=test;
weight n;
tables x*y / chisq;
run;

Best wishes,

Dale
