Subject:      Re: converting string (spaces) to numeric

I've used the comma. informat for years for reading in numbers. I love it. I can always trust it. It takes nearly everything you can throw at it.

1 data _null_; 2 str='100 000 000'; 3 x=input(str,comma13.); 4 put x=; 5 run;

x=100000000 NOTE: DATA statement used: real time 0.43 seconds
