|Subject: ||create new variable|
Hi SAS Experts,
I was trying to create new variables from my old variables. The old
variable looks like the following:
AAA H-D LIQ -.25
AAA H-D LIQ
BBBBB H-D LIQ
CCCC H-D LIQ PP
DD H-D LIQ
The value under the variable name var1 has 30 number of bytes, some of
them is space. I would like to seperate the value of "var1" into several
varibles which will be in the format:
var1 var2 var3 var4
AAA H-D LIQ -0.25
because the would-be-first variable's number of bytes is not fixed (AAA,
BBBBB, CCCd, DD...), I found it is difficult for me to do this. Do you
have any hints of how to do this?
Thank you very much!
