How to get column titles in one line when both BY and ACROSS are used

HI

I want the column titles to be in one row instead of in the scenario like this:

TABLE FILE CAR
SUM
SALES
BY COUNTRY
ACROSS CAR AS ''
END
-EXIT

Satish,
quote:
TABLE FILE CAR
SUM
SALES
BY COUNTRY
ACROSS CAR AS ''
END

Using this syntax you cannot.
However, nothing is impossible with FOCUS. Try this:
  
TABLE FILE CAR
BY CAR
ON TABLE SET HOLDLIST PRINTONLY
ON TABLE HOLD AS ALLCARS FORMAT ALPHA
END
-RUN
-SET &NCARS=&LINES;
DEFINE FILE CAR
-REPEAT #CSALES FOR &I FROM 1 TO &NCARS;
-READFILE ALLCARS
'&CAR' / I6S = IF CAR EQ '&CAR' THEN SALES ELSE 0;
-#CSALES
END 
-RUN
-CLOSE ALLCARS
TABLE FILE CAR
SUM
-REPEAT #PSALES FOR &I FROM 1 TO &NCARS;
-READFILE ALLCARS
'&CAR'
-#PSALES
BY COUNTRY
END

READFILE supported with WF77 is so handy. No need to worry about field order and field format.

Thanks Daniel for sharing.

Here's a trick that might work for you:

TABLE FILE CAR
 SUM SALES 
 BY COUNTRY AS ''
 ACROSS CAR AS 'COUNTRY'
 ON TABLE SET ACROSSTITLE SIDE
END

Doug,
Sorry for late response
Dan's trick is not working for me. Also Readfile is not supported in WF 769. Can I achieve this with FILEDEF

ACROSS CAR AS 'COUNTRY'
ON TABLE SET ACROSSTITLE SIDE
END

Thanks for the tip.

Since neither -READFILE nor SET ACROSSTITLE are available until release 7.7, here's another trick that might work for you:

TABLE FILE CAR
 SUM SALES
 BY COUNTRY NOPRINT
 ACROSS CAR AS ''
 COMPUTE XCOUNTRY/A15 = COUNTRY ; AS 'COUNTRY'
 ON TABLE SET STYLE *
  TYPE=REPORT, COLUMN=XCOUNTRY, SEQUENCE=1, $
 ENDSTYLE
END
