I have an issue.. I am using the ODBC with proc sql. This is my code
proc sql noprint;
connect to odbc
as atest (noprompt="DRIVER=Microsoft Excel Driver (*.xls);
create table day4 as
select * from connection to atest
select * from "abc tensile test 6-2-11.is$"
disconnect from atest;
Now the excel file reads in, but in my original data file I have some values for id that have 201 202 203 R201 R202. So SAS gives me missing values for all the character variables but reads in only numeric.
How do I define conversion of numeric to character variable inside my data step above in proc sql.
