I am having some trouble with a Proc Summary that I am hoping to get some help on.
Here is what I am trying to run:
PROC SUMMARY DATA=ONHAND;
OUTPUT OUT = SUM_ONHAND
However my ONHAND column from ONHAND is listed as a character because when this was imported from a .txt file when the ONHAND count is negative they have a minus sign and the number in between a lot of spaces. (ie. - 4), So I compressed it to take away the spaces but now when I run the PROC SUMMARY I get the following message:
ERROR: Variable ONHAND in list does not match type prescribed for this list.
I appreciate any help that can be given.
