## Re: numeric values getting converted to char note

This statement would definitely generate such a note:

n=strip(nt);

Try switching to:

n = strip(put(nt, 8.));

options nonotes;

And you are better of using catx to concatenate than || operator

a quick look at your code makes me think

`n=strip(nt);`

this causes the note to be written to the log
