I have a dataset (excel) containing text with unicode characters (example: ). When I create a sas dataset from this, I get only textual part whereas these unicode characters are ignored. Is there a workaround in SAS (not using any 3rd party software) ?
Thanks a lot for your suggestions in advance!

For a start could you run proc options and then look for the DBCS settings.
They should be similar to this.
DBCS Enables double-byte character sets for encoding East Asian languages. DBCSLANG=UNKNOWN Specifies a double-byte character set language. DBCSTYPE=UTF8 Specifies the encoding method to use for a double-byte character set.
