I'm trying to remove 'B4071234' from subjid variable -B4071234 1234 11111111
data finalset test;substr(strip(CONT_CD),1,8)='';
I'm getting error.
var='B4071234 1234 11111111';
Thanks for the quick response.
What do you mean anyspace ? number of character to remove ?
basically that logic finds a the first blank space which is the delimiter and extracts all chars after the delimiter space, consequently ignoring the chars you mentioned above
When SUBSTR appears to the left of the equal sign, the first parameter must be a variable name (not an expression such as using STRIP). You could try something along the lines of:
CONT_CD = substr(CONT_CD, 10);
