Hi. If I try the following in V6.12 and in V8 (both under Windows '98), I
get two different results. I always assumed that the result I got in V6.12
is what I should get (since I never saw SAS behave otherwise). Any
opinions on what result is correct?
length x $20;
@1 x $test3.
@1 y 3.
proc print data=test;
In V6.12, X has a length of 20 and PROC PRINT shows...
OBS X Y
1 ONE-HUNDRED 100
2 NOT ONE-HUNDRED 200
In V8, X still has a length of 20, but PROC PRINT shows...
Obs x y
1 ONE 100
2 NOT 200
