I am importing a csv file in sas and one of the observations include data like Datsun_715
when i am importing such mixed data in sas it is only reading Datsun_
and that 715 is not getting read.
what to do? please suggest?

Most probably the variable is defined with too short length.
If you used proc import, copy the data step from the log and adapt it.

what if i redefine the length of the corresponding variable?
If the variable has already been read incorrectly changing the length won't change the underlying value.
Another fix for an 'incorrect' import from CSV Is to make the GUESSINGROWS option big - as large a the file. This means it scans the entire column before deciding on a length and format.
