Hi,

Is there a way how I can make SAS understand such national characters like “ā” “ī”, “ē”, “š” (they are in Latvian).

When I try to read them in with datalines, SAS gives me an error:

data test;
input letters $;
datalines;
ā
ē
ī
š
;
run;

An error occured executing the workspace job .. .
Integration technologies failed to submit the code. [Error] Some code points did not transcode.

Somehow, if putting the same in csv and reading in with infile statement, it works, though letters are shown in a changed way:

â
ç
î
ð

I have read much documentation about national language support, but can’t understand how it really works. Could somebody please give me some advice about this?

Thanks,
Ieva
