Re: Import Text Files

I think we need more information about how you are importing this. Are you using the Import Task in Enterprise Guide, importing as Fixed Width text file?

Otherwise, this might be a good question for tech support folks: http://support.sas.com/techsup/contact/submit_emits2.html

Re: Import Text Files

Hi Chris,

In this case we need change the format to $CHAR. When I import the file without this format the space before is ignored but when I imported the file with this format this not happens.

Thanks for your reply.
