Dear Sharon,

Either use the ROUND function (see your docs) to round the values (in your dataset) or use a format with a limited N of decimals (in this case 0) to not round you values, but round them only while printed, displayed.

My computer says 'beep'. What's wrong with that? It's talking too much!

I'd like SAS to round my variables to the nearest integer. I read in the SAS help that the statment "proc print round (X, 1)" can round the numbers. However, I get an error message when I do this. I also tried using "proc means maxdec = 1" but this also does not do anything. Can anyone help me? Thank you.
