What do you want these values to become once it is numeric?
10216 and 112116? If so:

gen id_numeric=real(subinstr(ID," ","",.))

Or something more complicated?

David

Dear list members,
Could someone help me with converting string variables
with embedded  blanks.

 Let say I have:
 ID
 1 02 16
 1121 16

 Where ID is a string variable and I want to convert
 it  in numeric.  How do I proceed?

 Thank for your help.
