[SOLVED] Universal Concatenation - 1 SUM Field but Different Formats?

Hey All,

This is just a theory question as I have a work-around.

The challenge is displaying multiple sum values in an across table that have different format types. It'd be nice to display each of the values without having to use FPRINT so that subtotals could be utilized. Subtotals unfortunately don't work with FPRINT in a COMPUTE statement (to my knowledge, happy for someone to prove me wrong).

So here is an example:

 

 TABLE FILE CAR
 SUM
     COMPUTE COLVAL/D12.2 = PaidAmount
 BY Country
 BY TOTAL COMPUTE COLID/I1 = 1;
 ON TABLE HOLD AS 'HOLD_1'
 END

 TABLE FILE CAR
 SUM
     COMPUTE COLVAL/D12C = Number_Sales
 BY Country
 BY TOTAL COMPUTE COLID/I1 = 2;
 ON TABLE HOLD AS 'HOLD_2'
 END
 
 TABLE FILE HOLD_1
 SUM
	COLVAL AS ''
 ACROSS COLID
 BY Country
 MORE HOLD_2
 ENd
 


As this code is written right now, I will get an error since the format in the COLVAL SUM fields between the two hold files are different.

Can anyone think of a way other than using FPRINT in the Compute statement to have different formats in the same field in a Universal Concatenation statement in order to have subtotal functionality in the resulting Concatenated table?

Use dynamic formatting -

SET ASNAMES = ON
SET HOLDLIST = PRINTONLY
TABLE FILE CAR
SUM
     COMPUTE COLVAL/D12.2 = RCOST;
	 COMPUTE FORMAT/A8 = 'D12.2';
 BY COUNTRY
 BY TOTAL COMPUTE COLID/I1 = 1;
ON TABLE HOLD AS HOLD_1
END
-RUN

TABLE FILE CAR
SUM
     COMPUTE COLVAL/D12.2 = DCOST;
	 COMPUTE FORMAT/A8 = 'D12C';
 BY COUNTRY
 BY TOTAL COMPUTE COLID/I1 = 2;
ON TABLE HOLD AS HOLD_2
END
-RUN

TABLE FILE HOLD_1
SUM
	COLVAL/FORMAT AS ''
ACROSS COLID
BY COUNTRY
MORE
FILE HOLD_2
END
