Hi there,

I'm new to SAS and am using SAS Enterprise Miner 14.1.

My problem is pretty simple (but so am ISmiley Happy).

I have a variable "month" that can take the values Jan, Feb, Mar ... Dec but I want to create a new numeric variable from that, let's call it nmonth, that is = 1 if month=Jan, =2 if month = Feb etc.

The Help suggests Expression Builder seems to be the way to go but how do I get to this (if indeed this is the best way to go)?

Regards

Confused
