Trying to remove single and double quotes from a character variable using Compress (and/or KCompress). In translated data from Asia, however, it appears the single and double quotes are a Unicode character, not a standard WLatin apostrophe (even though it "looks" like an apostrophe). How can I identify and strip these Chinese chars out?
I probably should clarify that we are on SAS 9.2 and support the native Unicode data just fine. However, need to "save down" to 9.0 WLatin version (for the sake of the client system), and in that transcoding, these apostrophe's cause trouble.
