Subject: nobs in proc report: why isn't this simple?
I have a feeling that I must be missing something really obvious.
Using proc report, I want to print on one page the value of a numeric
ID variable for every record, and then follow this on the same page
with the number of records in the dataset. But nothing akin to the
following will do so.
proc report nowindows panels=99;
columns idnum n;
define idnum / display;
define n / noprint;
rbreak after / summarize;
This particular example will, of course, completely disregard "n", due
to the noprint option. But I don't want an "n" printed with every
value of "idnum". (For one thing, "n" is always 1 at the detail
I assume that compute variables won't help too much, either.
