I'm trying to read a CSV with long records using "infile" statement. I can read the long record using "lrecl=" option. However, this file also has numeric values enclosed within parenthesis, which is giving me an error. I'm using the informat "comma". Can you please advise me how I can fix this? Thank you in advance!
infile "&out_path./&fn." dlm="," dsd missover pad firstobs=2 obs=5 lrecl=5640;
Yield_1 - Yield_912 :comma10.3
Observation value causing error:
0.670 , (5.095), 3.168
(Note, as the record is very long, I've only listed the values 323, 324 and 325. 323 and 325 are ready correctly)
NOTE: Invalid data for Yield_324 in line 5 1890-1897.
