I'm a new user to SAS so this may sound like an easy question but I can't figure it out. I have a list of numbers that have a dash at the end of the number followed by additional numbers. The numbers before the dash can range in length from 8-12 digits long. I'm trying to remove the dash and all the numbers that follow the dash. Below is an example
12345-1 would like it to read as 12345
123456789-00 would like it to read as 123456789
123456789123-002 would like it to read as 123456789123
Hopefully that makes sense. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
