1. Figure out what it is, run a proc contents to see the variable type and format.
2. If it's a character, use input with the format to read it in as a different format (input(var, time8))

How do I change the format on  my time col to time ? I currently have it as a number in the description section     The data looks like this 12:23:45 ... When I use the data step to change the format it comes back blank the col I wonder if it's even a number maybe it's a character?  How do I convert character to number with a time8 format ?
