Subject:      Formatting Output

Hi Everyone,

I am looking for some help on formatting output. I see all the features that can be applied to output (tables, etc.) and am attempting to harness that power. Here is what I am looking to do. I am running custom tables and want to set this up as a template, so that every time I run my tables, this identical format appears every single time. I have saved my table as a look and not all of the changes have saved. Just for reference, I am running V.13 and probably will be upgrading to V.14 in the near future.

1) Is it possible to add space between the row of my last summary statistic from one category and the first summary statistic of the next category, but only between these two? I know you can resize columns, but how about specific rows?

2) When I typically run my custom table, my variable label appears on the left side. What I want to do is make that the title, and remove it from the left hand side.

3) I want my title left aligned.

4) In my tables, I typically have a few categorical variables in the columns. Is there any way to have a line separate only the variables. For instance, there would be no line between each category of every variable, only between the variables themselves? And second, is there any way I can specify exactly where this line ends? Line only exists in the data portion of the output. Line extends from the data portion to just above the category labels and that is it?

5) Finally, like I said above. Every time I run a table, I want these settings to occur. I saved my table look but some of these 'tweaks' were not retained.

Anyway, if anyone can point me in the right direction, I would greatly appreciate it!

Many thanks in advance,
