Convert Word symbol to SAS readable data

Hi, I need to import data from an Excel file. One of the column (which will be used as variable label, or SAS format value) contains the symbol "≥". How can I read in this data correctly? Or how can I convert it to ">=" so that SAS can display it properly?
Many Thanks

Re: Convert Word symbol to SAS readable data

I’m not sure that I fully understand your problem. If you need to display the ≥ symbol in a report generated by SAS, here is one way that it can be done.

[pre]
ods html file='C:\temp.html';
ods listing close;
data temp;
x='greater than or equal to';
label x='Symbol is ^{unicode 2265}';
run;

ods escapechar='^';
proc print data=temp label noobs;
run;
ods html close;
ods listing;
[/pre]
