How does one read strings in SAS? For instance, if I am reading in a name like Washtenaw County in a pipe delimted file?


Define the length of your variable before you read in the data. In the example below “name” is the field that has county names:

data a;

length name $40;

infile 'test.txt’ dlm='|';

input geoid $ name $ type part2000 part2010 ;
