Hi kms,

» I'm getting surprising results always that I'm taking sample size with 80% power and by coming to the results always 98 Power it is reaching....How it is possible always?

If the irrelevant post hoc power is always 98%, I suspect a flaw in the software (or SAS macro).
If it is always higher than the one used in sample size estimation it may be a miscalculation – ineradicably “popular” in Indian CROs (see this post). Revise your procedures.
