When I tried to print the values of SAS dataset in HTML form/page, I observed that some non english characters ( e.g. 0000036455 (BSJKK 仙台営業所)) are printed as you see in the attachment . However when I tried to query (e.g. where ID like '0000036455%') the dataset with that value I do not see them at all.
What would be the likely cause for this issue? Any help to resolve this? Not sure if this is some junk characters which was displayed in HTML while printing SAS dataset values. However I should see the number (0000036455) atleast in SAS dataset but I could not see. I'm sure that I'm referring the correct dataset as I could see some values in the dataset which was shown in HTML and in those values there is no junk characters appended with the number.
What does the description of the dataset say about this column? It could well be that you see some unformatted binary values (e.g. a raw UUID).
If both the number and the Chinese characters occupy the same column, it seems to me that the number is immediately followed by a blank, so
will get you the number without the other stuff.
