sasCommunity Tip of the Day

When you read raw data using LIST-style input in conjunction with INFORMATS, it is essential that you have a good grasp of three INFORMAT modifiers. These symbols give you a lot more flexibility when reading complex data. These modifiers include:

  • & allows embedded blanks in character variables
  • : allows the use of informats for non-aligned columns
  • ~ allows the use of quotation marks within data fields
