Subject:      Format Question
Content-type: text/plain; charset=us-ascii

I Have a format on a variable

The format is ftest. and the format for the value 1 is "NICOLAS"

data test ; a=1 ; format a ftest. run ;

Now If I export the file test in an external file, i will have this result in my external file 1 line with value NICOLAS

Now i would like to read my external file and transform the value NICOLAS in value 1

How can I do it, the informat solution is-it the only one ?

thanks for any advices
