SAS gives me the following error: The function LENGHTC is unknown, or cannot be accessed.
This occurs after I give the following commands:
data b; text="a ba ckjp"; lenght_text=lenghtc(text); run;
I check this document but I may have missed some steps... http://support.sas.com/documentation/cdl/en/lrdict/64316/HTML/default/viewer.htm#a002283942.htm
Thanks to all for any tip.

SAS should replace the Enhanced Editor with a properly configured port of emacs ...
But what would happen if the Editor tries to correct the spelling but you have a custom defined function of LenghtC? I'm a little leery of programs that try to "help" too much.

It doesn't need to correct your typing so much, but it can provide autocomplete which shows valid options in a list to choose from, here is a snippet from Sharpdevelop:
Typing len would automatically show a list of functions/types associated with that prefix. Yes, I know the EE has abbreviations, its really a half hearted attempt though. Try almost all IDE's (or even text editors) they all have it. Note in the above dataGrid1 is mine, so it automatically assumes thats the most prominent.

@F_S SAS could not recognise this function due to syntax error, misspelled lengthc (arg),
Please refer the above syntax
