    Dear Attaullah,

    Hope this finds you well.

    A quick question today – I have used the code below to test the output as I would like to use this type of table for a report:

    webuse nhanes2b, clear   
    
    asdocx  tabulate diabetes i.agegrp ,  template(table1) ///
     col dec(1) dect(1) format(%3.1f) replace 

    However I can’t seem to get percentages with one dp only?

    Is there anything I am missing? I read the help file but could not find info about this.

    Thanks in advance!

    Best regards,

    Attaullah Shah

    I forgot to change a macro in the table1 template, this is why dec() and dect() had no effect on the output. I have fixed that. You can update to the beta version and test it. To update, please type:

    asdocx_update, beta mlib

    Here is an example where I would like to report 4 dp for the p-values and 1 dp for the percentages.

    asdocx  tabulate diabetes i.agegrp ,  template(table1) ///
     col dec(1) dect(1) replace 
    Table 1: Demographics
    Variables Not diabetic (n=9850) Diabetic (n = 499) Total (10349) P-value
