Characters changed all of sudden in SAS EG

[ Edited ]

 

Hi,

 

My question is not related to programming. There are some special characters in the dataset that I'm working with, like ä,.. Before it worked fine but now all of sudden they have changed to an special character. It seems that it's only me who has this problem and not other colleagues. What could be the problem?

 

Thanks.

Re: Characters changed all of sudden in SAS EG

Are you seeing this in the same unmodified data set or a new data set built from a similar data source?

If the first case perhaps you changed a display font. ASCII characters above 127 are not standard and changing fonts can make a big difference in appearance.

If the later it may be a change in the encoding of your data source.

Thanks for your reply. But can you please tell me how I can change it(in both case)?
