what is the difference between proc means and proc tabulate?..

Answer / paul

same statistics can be produced with both means & tabulate procedures but the difference lies in reporting/presenting the result.
eg: PROC MEANS can assign labels for Variable names but can't assign labels for statistics, whereas PROC TABULATE can assign labels for both variable names and statistics.
