Because there is no code and no sample data in the problem statement, I can
The PROC MEANS result is numeric. The macrovariable is a character string.
If the necessary conversion is done with the default BEST12. format, you
may encounter rounding (not truncation). Try converting with the PUT
function, specifying an appropriate format (like 20.14 or E12.).
