Subject: convert string to numeric
Content-Type: text/plain; charset=us-ascii
I posted a message last week about converting existing
string variables to numeric variables. I received a
few replies, but none of them provided the solutions I
want. All I want is to change the existing variables
from string to numeric using SYNTAX, withouth changing
the variable names. I don't want to create new
variables. Can someone help me out here?
