I have a column name which calles  int'l that I want to assign a standard name literal.

I tried to put a single quatotion mark with a letter n like  'int'l'n,  but it was still not allowed in the data set.

Can anyone guide me on this?

You can't use single quotes to quote partial single quote, SAS will be confused. Try double quotes:

 

options validvarname=any;

data test;
input "int'l"n $;
cards;
test
;
run;
