Hello,

I have a delimited raw data file .

Now I want to create a SAS dataset using the raw data file using Do loop as there are variable number of records and variable length fileds.

How to increment it in Do loop.

Input :

A   1*2*3*4*5

B   5*6*7

C   1*45*78*54

Desired Output:

A     1

A     2

A     3

A     4

A     5

B     5

B     6

B     7

C     1

C     45

C     78

C     54

Use scan(var,n,'*') together with a do until loop.

Can you please let me know how to write that if my delimiter is Hex Value ('41'x) instead of '*'        ?
