This paper discusses how to use multilabel formats, how to control the sort order of your formats, how to print rows with missing data, and how to maintain indentations and leading spaces in ODS output.

Multilabel formats allow a user to create hierarchical formats, showing multiple levels of groups in the same table. However, the default settings in SAS can distort how the output is displayed making it difficult to visually distinguish major groups from sub-groups. Have no fear! You can control the display of your tables in Four Easy Steps! This presentation will discuss how to use multilabel formats, how to control the sort order of your formats, how to print rows with missing data, and how to maintain indentations and leading spaces in ODS output.
