Hi,
I'd like to create a new variable that contains only
the first two digits of the numbers that an existing
variable contains.
For instance, the first 2 observations in x1 are:
6566
3478
I'd like the first 2 observation in a new variable x2
to be:
65
34
How do I do that?
Thanks for your help!
Jake
