creating folder

<hi, one begginer question. Is it posible any way to create folder with this
a = ltrim(str(nsif)) + '_' + substr(cgod,3,2)
md &a

problem is that bouth values are numbers for example nsif=12
cgod = 2010 and md should be 12_10.


RE: creating folder

If the first variable is numeric and the second variable is a string then your code should work, simply enter the "RUN" command in the format shown below.  I have taken the liberty to pre-select the drive and path for this example.


a = ltrim(str(nsif)) + '_' + substr(cgod,3,2)
RUN md &a

As a side note beware of using single characters "a" to "m" too much since (1) they can be nondescriptive and get lost in complex code and (2) in some scenarios they can represent a "work area" for tables or other specific purpose.  The above code is fine, just a note.
