Hey, I'm new to SAS and am stuck. The following is part of my coding. Columns Score and Denominator are showing up as character values, while Numerator is showing up as numeric. I realize I have the character symbol in the length statement, but the statement won't run otherwise.
How do I turn Score and Denominator into numeric?
How to I format the percentage so that it's numeric yet still has the % symbol?
Your code either must declare the variables as numeric or create a different named variable and my suggestion is to use the INPUT function to assign the new variables (or you can let SAS to the conversion in an assignment statement but I don't recommend that technique).
