data from 5 datasets with a numeric variable(out of 5 variables)

Post by msiddu200 » Fri, 27 Feb 2009 01:58:08


I am having a libref with five datasets and each dataset with five
variables each and having only one observation.Out of five variables
one variable is numeric.
I want the data from all five datasets with a numeric variable.
How can I do this using datastep or a macro without knowing whether a
variable is numeric?

Thanks in advance.

Hi Everyone!

I was wondering if it is possible to covert a string variable into a
numeric variable without creating a new variable.
I am dealing with a data set that has over 300 variables that are
coded as string variables that need to be converted into numeric
variables. Given that I am dealing with a large number of variables,
clicking on each of them is a very tedious option. At the same time,
using recode or compute command and creating a set of new variables
will change require writing out a name for each variable. I thought of
an option of dropping the original variables after that recoding and
then renaming recoded variables with names of the original variables,
but it still seems very time consuming, especially if I have to work
with the same problem over and over again.

Thanks,
Anastasia
