Hi everyone,

Thanks for the thoughts from Art et al.

I actually ended up solving the problem by addressing the formatting in the prior DATA step rather than the PROC SUMMARY step, and it worked just fine.

I think that the problem was that SAS wasn't reading the lines from the text program completely... when I read the log, it's like it was reading the word "format" as a variable.

Take care, Alex
