Hi Elena and everyone requesting help,
Everyone on SAS-L either requests or provides help, so a subject line like HELP is completely meaningless. And so is a subject like SIMPLE NEWBIE QUESTION; first of all a newbie would not be able to decide the question to be simple (and whether a question or problem is simple or not does not matter at all), secondly questions are mostly posed by newbies (and being a newbie does not help getting a question answered more quickly) and thirdly it concerns questions which are being asked (that is trivial, but which question?). Other examples of nonsense subjects are QUICK MACRO HELP, MACRO PROBLEM, SIMPLE PROBLEM, SAS HELP, etc.
So, Elena, in your case the subject should have been something like
"Number from file processed incorrectly"

we got a tab-delimited file and the data was imported with
proc import datafile="c:\Projects\Meredith\Mercer Project\Original data
Then the imported organization ID is in the format of 1.000185E24. So I
created a new orgID as
However, when I check the orgID with the original organization ID that was
in the tab-delimited text file, they are different.
orgID=1000185000001000051834880 but the original=
I don't know where those 51834880 came from as these numbers were not shown
in the text file.
Thank you very much.
