I have times that are character fields in the format x:xx PM/AM, for example, 1:30 PM and 10:30 AM.
How can I convert these character fields into numeric fields that display 24-hour time? For example, change 1:00 PM to 13:00.

You use a SAS INFORMAT to convert a character string to a SAS date or time or datetime value SAS(R) 9.3 Formats and Informats: Reference
You then apply a SAS FORMAT to this SAS date/time/datetime value so that it prints the way you want to.
