Subject: Converting string to numeric
Content-Type: text/plain; charset="us-ascii"
I have a variable which is supposed to serve as an id number. Somehow,
I have cases that have letters for a value. I've deleted them. When I
try to change the variable to a numeric value, everything turns up
I'm exporting the data from excel. I've tried to change the formatting
there, but it hasn't worked. Are there any other options?
Thanks in advance,
