I am trying to convert a category containing different regions of a country into a geographical variable. I am aware that SAS VA needs a special coding, as far as the region names are concerned, and I accomplished that in a preprocessing phase. However, I cannot change the variable type in the designing report section. The weird thing is that if I import the same column (variable) from a .csv file containing only that column (and not all the others), SAS VA recognizes it as a geographical variable by itself. Anyway, I would like to import all the variables from the same .csv dataset, and not to split them in a preprocess phase.
