Hi, I'm looking to extract multiple words from a longer string for the purposes of text mining. At the moment, all I can think of would be to concatenate the output from two SCAN functions, but I was wondering if there was a simpler way?
Current method in PROC SQL is:
CAT(SCAN(string, 1),' ',SCAN(string, 2))

There might be some things you can do, but we don't have a lot to work with.
You have some code that smashes the first word of a string together with the second word of a string.
Maybe if you supplied some dummy sample data and a little bit more about the output you want to generate, we could provide some better guidance.
