Proc Print in SAS generally does not show any quotes unless you add them as part of the value. So if you have something currently showing quotes it is likely not done by SAS and should be addressed there.
If you expect to show quotes with Proc Print then add the quotes, which may mean you need to increase the length of variables as that will take two characters.
Which works because the default length when reading with $ is 8. The Strip function is needed because otherwise the Quote function will include the default blanks at the end of the 8 characters as part of the value and the second quote isn't seen as it would be in a character position past 8.
