one suggestion: the variables need to be consistent in terms of
characater vs. numeric. i suggest you make both variables numeric; you
can change the character one to numeric via -destring- or the string
function -real- (see appropriate help files). of course, if you have
leading zeros in your character variable, you may need to do some
additional manipulation. following this, you can merge via -merge-.
again, see the help documentation, accessed via typing -help merge- in the
command window (w/out the dashes, of course).
hope this helps,
