I am reading a text file into SAS. Field A on the text file is 5 bytes in length. I am trying to compare it to a table in SAS where the SAS table has it as 8 bytes in length. The field has 3 decimal positions.
So even though both variables on the table have the same value i.e. 0.107 I am not getting an equal on the compare.
The text file I am reading in the field looks like this. It is pipe delimited |0.107|. Can someone tell me what I can do so that these two fields compare as equal.
