Subject:      Re: Two level format name, possible?

Try this, from my book; The Power of PROC FORMAT.

Few errors in my last post. Try this:

options nocenter symbolgen mprint fullstimer; proc format; value study 1='visita' 2='visitb' ; value visita 1='Day -7' 2='Week 1' 3='Week 4' ;

value visitb 1='Day -7' 2='Week 1' 3='Week 6' ;

data visit; study=1; visit=1; output; study=1; visit=2; output; study=1; visit=3; output; study=2; visit=1; output; study=2; visit=2; output; study=2; visit=3; output; run;

** this does work; data visit; set visit; fmtuse=put(study,study.); cvisit=putn(visit,fmtuse); run; proc print data=visit; run;


Obs study visit fmtuse cvisit

1 1 1 visita Day -7 2 1 2 visita Week 1 3 1 3 visita Week 4 4 2 1 visitb Day -7 5 2 2 visitb Week 1 6 2 3 visitb Week 6
