I am trying to Read data from txt file where delimiter is © (copyright symbol).
The data fields in txt file have varied lengths. Any help with this would be highly appreciated.

The photo you posted does not look like a text file. What type of file are you reading?
data want ; infile 'myfile.txt' dsd dlm='©' truncover ; length var1 8 varr $20 ; input var1 var2 ; run;

You can use any single-byte character as delimiter in an infile statement. So if it's the character 'a9'x from the ISO 8859-1 set, you can use it. If it's the UTF-8 character, you can't, and you will have to "manually" dissect the _infile_.
