**What is the difference between maxdec= and Proc=?**

As already mentioned, maxdec= works for limiting the number of decimal places below 8. Proc means isn’t going to let you do too much to change the format of the summary statistics. I’d suggest using proc tabulate:

#### How do I change the format of a PROC FREQ table?
