This question came without a subject header:

Here is one way of doing this. Insert a space after every colon and then input the scanned value of VAR1 with the colon separator.

data q ( drop = i ) ; array v (8) var2 - var9 ; Var1="5365:6.82::5.82:85:::" ; do i = 1 to 8 ; v(i) = input( scan ( tranwrd( var1 , ":" , ": " ), i , ":" ) , 8. ) ; end ; run ; __________________________ Venky Chakravarthy E-mail:

Hi all, Happy new year! This is Guoyi Liu from Colorado, I posted a question to listserv several month ago. I have a question about SAS data management aagain, I am not sure if someone could help me again. My queston is below.

Var1="5365:6.82::5.82:85:::" Format is Char.

between two ':' there is a missing value. How can I seperate them to

var2 var3 var4 var5 var6 var7 var8 var9 5365 6.82 . 5.82 85 . . .

Thank you very much.
