Tips:Finding the Position of the First Non-Digit in a String

From sasCommunity

To find the position of the first non-digit character in a string, you can use the SAS function notdigit

For example, the value of Y would be equal to 3 in the following:

data test;
    RM_ID = '01@24$';
    Y = notdigit(trim(RM_ID));
run;

If the whole string contains only numbers, then the value of Y would be equal to zero.
