Suppose I have the following SAS code:
input id name$;
Some names are missing and I have the dot "." that signifies that these names are missing, but is it possible to have instead of the dot the actual word "Missing"?

Isn't the value for name going to be a period? Shouldn't it be
if name='.' then name='Missing';
No the $ INFORMAT (variables A and C) reads dot as missing to accommodate list input which needs place holder.
