Hi all,

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...
