How to change encoding for a dataset?

Hey guys! Smiley Happy

 

I would like to know if there is any way to change the dataset's encoding. Currently it is in ASCII (or utf-16Ie (I don't know what is that)), which is - I guesss - not supported by Enterprise guide, because it's always throwing an error when I want to make descriptive statistics on (for example) invoice. It says that it is not UTF-8 (to be precise, it says: "failed to transcode data from utf-16Ie(...)"). So I have to change the encoding.

 

And If I am here I would like to ask that, what should I do if it drops error for an importation? I wanted to import the sashelp.class, but it keep yelling that it is NOT a dataset... Any guess?

 

Thank you for your answers. Smiley Happy

Re: How to change encoding for a dataset?

I solved it for myself. Smiley Happy Here is the method:

 

1. Go to the location of your SAS.

2. Then go into SASFoundation.

3. Click on 9.4 folder, and after it search the sasv9 file.

4. Open it with ".txt" editor (notepad, note++ etc).

5. Write over th "/en/" to "/u8/".

 

It will solve ALL the problems. Smiley Happy
