This tutorial explains how to change variable type (classification) from category to measure in SAS Visual Analytics.
Step I :
Suppose you import a dataset in SAS Visual Analytics in which there is a numeric (continuous) variable that is stored as character (or classified as "Category"). You want to convert it to numeric ( "measure"). By default, you cannot change the variable format from "category" to "measure".
We can solve this problem by creating a new calculated data item using the PARSE function.
Step I :
Select Data >> New Calculated Item (See the image below)
|SAS Visual Analytics : New Calculated Item|
Step 2 :
Enter a Name for the calculated itemStep 3 :
Enter the Parse function under the 'Text' section. In the following function, 'Order' is the variable that we want to change it from category to measure.
