Subject: Creating a new variable that combines a character and date
Content-Type: text/plain; charset="iso-8859-1"
I'm working on a large data set that contains a FamilyID (which is a
character variable) and a DOB (which is in mmddyy). I need to create a
new character variable that combines the character variable with DOB so
that I can identify each individual. For ex: FamilyID= 0007 and DOB=
11/01/49 then new_variable=0007110149. Any ideas for a SAS beginner?
