     SAS Note: SN-002584
     Product: QC
     Component: CAPABILITY

    Title:
    PROC CAPABILITY outputs incorrect weighted quantiles

    Keywords:
    WEIGHT QUANTILE PERCENTILE PCTLPTS= PCTLPRE= INCORRSTAT INCORROUT WRONG
    VARIABLE NAMES WEIGHTED QUANTILES PERCENTILES

    When WEIGHT and OUTPUT statements are used in PROC CAPABILITY and the
    PCTLPTS= option is specified on the OUTPUT statement, the OUT= data set
    will contain the default weighted quantiles (0.01, 0.05, 0.10, etc.)
    regardless of the quantile values requested with the PCTLPTS= option.
    The output quantile variable names are still generated according the
    PCTLPTS= and PCTLPRE= options on the OUTPUT statement, but the values
    are incorrect.

    To circumvent this problem, use PROC UNIVARIATE instead of PROC
    CAPABILITY.
