Hi

      I need to concatenate two varaibles is dataset. two variables are dose and doseu.

for example:

 

      dose    doseu

       20        ml

I want to create one variable by combining these two. And expecting the result like below. I need to add parentheses to the second variable.

 

newvariable

20 (ml).

 

Thanks

Rashmi.

One variation:

 

newvariable = catx( ' (', dose, doseu) || ')' ;
