Subject: Numeric macro variable
Hello fellow users!
I am writing a macro to which I submit a string of numbers, e.g.:
For other purposes, using proc sql within the macro, I read this string
into another macro variable in order to obtain the following:
I know that both of the variables have character type. I would like,
however to count the numbers in the string, in this case 4.
Any comments on how to do that?
Thanks a lot.
