This question is taking me too long to answer, but I'm sure one of you
genius' out there can answer off the top of your head. I'm trying to
input a numeric value that has 15 decimal places, but SAS appears to be
only capable of inputing 14 decimal places. Now I realise that the 15th
decimal place isn't very significant, but it's one of those situations
where I'd prefer to be 100% accurate. Using SAS version 8.2.
informat var1 32.;
format var1 32.16;
input var1 32.;
When I open the test dataset, the 2 has been replaced with a 0. Is this
a V8.2 limitation and I should just accept this?
