I have a dataset that has one field, "progNote" with max size=32767. This variable contains some information I am interested in. I want to extract a portion of the text in this variable and place into a new variable. The begining of the text I want to extract is always the same which is "MILITARY HISTORY:". I want to extract text starting from the M in Military to 300 characters after for all records. Is there a way to do this in SAS. Thanks.
