I am trying to read JSON data in a data step.  I am running SAS 9.3, so I don't have PROC JSON.  Below is my code, results, and text file I am trying to read.  The problem is that I am using scanover and @ to point to "year":, for instance, and read the next variable.  However, when I get to periodName, it has variable length, so I am running past the field.  I have experimented with different options, dlm=, etc, but I can't get this to work.  Any help would be greatly appreciated!

data testdata;

    infile OUT lrecl = 32000 truncover scanover;

        input

            @'"year":' year $6.

            @'"period":' period $5.

            @'"periodName":' periodName $15.

            @'"value":' value $15.

            @'"footnotes":' footnotes $255.;

run;

Try adding DLM=',' to the INFILE and using INFORMAT statements instead of having the informat in the input:

informat  year $6.

             period $5.

            periodName $15.

             value $15.

             footnotes $255.;

        input

            @'"year":' year

            @'"period":' period

            @'"periodName":' periodName

            @'"value":' value $15.

            @'"footnotes":' footnotes ;

Thanks!  I added a @@ to the end of the input, and it worked great.
