I have some data that I cannot clean appropriately. I have read in some data that contains single quotes in variables that I want as numeric. I have tried to create a new variable by multiplyingh the old variable by 1 and also using the input function of creating a new variable, but the new variable always has a missing value.
Below is the error I get.
NOTE: Invalid numeric data, '44,178.67' , at line 640 column 9
