Subject:   formatting strings into numerics
Content-Type:   text/plain; charset=us-ascii

Dear Group,

I am trying to merge several files. To do this I need to format the widths of string variables so that they are all 255. I did the same to the numeric variables using Format all (F40.0).

Also I am trying to turn string variables into numeric variables. I have string id variables of the form 12-3456-7 and I would like to turn them into three variables of '12''3456''7'.

If you could also send your replies to it would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks kindly, Liz
