If you don't mind (var,position,'dlm') instead of (var,'dlm', position), then scan() is your friend.

Hi Ashwini..

In this way you can use Scan function.....

data test;

var="hello,how r you,I am fime";

var1=scan(var,1, ' , ');

var2=scan(var,2, ' , ');

var3=scan(var,3, ' , ');

run;

Thanks & Regards..
