Hi Greg,

The ClinPlus Format Builder allows you to define numerical and character formats well. Can it handle picture formats? The problem arises, for example with ECG data, where the variable "Axis" is a number but with prefixes (ie - or +). How can that be solved in ClinPlus?

Thank you and best regards,
Terry

Hi Terry,

As far as I know, the format builder does not address picture formats. To create these formats you would need to build the format catalog outside of the system using typical SAS Code. The catalog would still reside in the appropriate format library as defined in ClinPlus.

Regards,
