european style informats

Hi,
anybody know about european style numbers informats? That is using "," to separate decimal numbers and "." to separate thousands.

Incidentally, is it possible to know all informats my system allows?

Thank you in advance,

Javier

Check the SAS support website http://support.sas.com/ and search on "nls informats" (NLS stands for National Language Support). Also, here is a NLS Reference Guide:

NLS INFORMATs documented here:

Your SAS version may or may not be a supported level for one or more. SAS DOC webpage is at the link below:

Thank you chap.

I had a look and found it. Just for the record in case somebody is interested informat EUROXw.d did the trick: reads a number like 1.236,25 into 1236.25.
