Hmisc summary.formula formats for binary and continuous variables

 Hello, I am using Hmisc summary.formula, latex and Sweave to produce tables for publication.  Is it possible to change the formats for binary and continuous variables?  I would prefer to show 35 (10%) and 1.5 (1.2-1.8) rather than 10% (35) and 1.2 / 1.5 / 1.8. Here is a simple example: sex <- factor(sample(c("m","f"), 500, rep=TRUE)) age <- rnorm(500, 50, 5) treatment <- factor(sample(c("Drug","Placebo"), 500, rep=TRUE)) s1 <- summary(~sex + age) s2 <- summary(treatment ~ sex + age, method="reverse") print(s1); print(s2) Descriptive Statistics  (N=500) +-------+-----------------+ |       |                 | +-------+-----------------+ |sex : m|    46% (232)    | +-------+-----------------+ |age    |47.22/50.31/53.37| +-------+-----------------+ Descriptive Statistics by treatment +-------+-----------------+-----------------+ |       |Drug             |Placebo          | |       |(N=257)          |(N=243)          | +-------+-----------------+-----------------+ |sex : m|    47% (122)    |    45% (110)    | +-------+-----------------+-----------------+ |age    |47.35/50.00/52.68|46.78/50.92/53.97| +-------+-----------------+-----------------+ Thanks, Heemun ------------------------------------------------- Heemun Kwok, M.D. Research Fellow Harbor-UCLA Department of Emergency Medicine 1000 West Carson Street, Box 21 Torrance, CA 90509-2910 office 310-222-3501, fax 310-212-6101 ______________________________________________ [hidden email] mailing list https://stat.ethz.ch/mailman/listinfo/r-helpPLEASE do read the posting guide http://www.R-project.org/posting-guide.htmland provide commented, minimal, self-contained, reproducible code.
