Hi,

 

Assuming that the id is text:

three_chars=substr(left(id),1,3);

 

If number then:

three_chars=substr(put(id,6.),1,3);

if the employee code is a number, then you would need to convert it to a character first, then use Character functions to get the first three digits.

 

Data _null_;
 employee_code = 174078; /* Numeric */
 first_3_digits = INPUT(SUBSTR(PUT(employee_code,6.),1,3),3.); /* Num -> Char -> Num */
 put _all_;
run;

Try this code;

data one; infile cards;
input @1 empid;
cards;
174078
121764
190333
214078
;
data; set; format x 3.;
x=trunc((empid/1000),3);
proc print; run;
