I have a tab-delimited data and need to read into sas. I use PROC IMPORT and it starts to mess up at line 24. Part of the data is as attached. My code is as below. Does someone know what might cause the problem?
proc import datafile="movies.dat"

The most likely thing I see is that you import "movies.dat" and show an example file of "moviedata.txt".
I get no obvious problem with moviedata.txt. Do you have a movies.dat in a a different encoding or file format? Possibly one saved after opening with Excel?

Very interesting. The same code is running under SAS University Edition , it is failed. under PC SAS , it is successful. You should report it to SAS support.
