Introduction to Character String Functions
Bureau of Labor Statistics
Character string functions allow a user to manipulate character variables in a variety of ways. Users can create new variables out of parts of existing character variables, verify the contents of variables, find information within a variable, concatenate variables, and eliminate unnecessary blanks. This paper introduces a programmer to the functions in SAS® that do these various tasks.
