Hi all,

I have a question:

str1 = ('2011-01-02, 2011-01-03, 2011-01-04');


I wanted to convert the string to as below:

str2 = ('2011-01-02' , '2011-01-03' , '2011-01-04');

Hi

I'll test this on Monday when I have access to SAS again, but have you tried the TRANWRD function?

Str2 = TRANWRD(Str1, ","  , " ',' ");

This should replace all the commas with commas in single quotes. You need to copy the code above to see where I've used single and double quotes...
