I would like to create a macro variable for a texted value such as ' in July'. Notice there is a leading blank ahead of the word 'in'. Here is how i define the macro variable:
%let month = in July; (there is a leading blank to the left of the word 'in')
SAS automatically removes the leading and training blanks for a macro variable and as a result the leading blank is removed. How can I include the leading blank for a macro variable?
Thank you very much
