Subject: alphanumeric variable
Content-Type: text/plain; charset="iso-8859-1"
My question is relatively simple but I can't find a simple solution. I
am importing a data set containing 6 variables: Name, code, rating,
date, country and sector. The variable code is alphanumeric (sometimes
it takes numeric values and sometimes alphanumeric values). After
importing, SAS reads well my data. But when the variable code has a
numeric value, SAS does not read it, it leaves the cell empty.
Can anyone help me on that?
Thank you in advance,
