import the value of item_ID as text not number.
SAS number values have only 16-18 digits precision.

From SAS online documentation Informats
Ew.d Informat reads numeric values that are stored in scientific notation and double-precision scientific notation

However, if your source data is displaying only 1.70123E30, you cannot get the remaining digits of precision because they do not exist in your source data.
