Do you want to keep the varaible type character? If so

data have;
input a\$ 10.;
cards;
1.2346565
1.244
1.562546
run;

data want_round;
set have;
round_a=strip(put(round(a, .01), best6.2));
run;

Pro tip - start by reading how to post a question.  Explain what you want, using the body of the post to explain this.  A post topic saying make it work is not in the least bit polite or helpful.

Taking a rough guess, I would say you want a numeric which is rounded to 2 decimal places from that text, if so:

data want;
set have;
want=round(input(a,best.),0.01);
run;
