The output data set contains the following variables:
BY variables
a numeric variable _TYPE_
a character variable _NAME_
the column variables from the COMPUTAB data table
The BY variables contain values for the current BY group. For observations in the output data set from consolidation tables, the consolidated BY variables have missing values.
The special variable _TYPE_ is a numeric variable that can have one of three values: 1, 2, or 3. _TYPE_= 1 indicates observations from the normal report table produced for each BY group; _TYPE_= 2 indicates observations from the _TOTAL_ consolidation table; _TYPE_= 3 indicates observations from other consolidation tables. _TYPE_= 2 and _TYPE_= 3 observations have one or more BY variables with missing values.
The special variable _NAME_ is a character variable of length 8 that contains the row or column name associated with the observation from the report table. If the input data set is transposed, _NAME_ contains column names; otherwise, _NAME_ contains row names.
If the input data set is transposed, the remaining variables in the output data set are row variables from the report table. They are column variables if the input data set is not transposed.
