Default Sum of a character field?

Is there a way in SAS to take the sum of a character field?

Lets say I have a field called "field" in a table in my work library called "table". I've visually confirmed by looking up distinct values that for all of my rows in "field" are values that are numbers.

Is there a way in Sas I could take the some of "field"? Normally, If I wanted to quickly spot check something, I might just use PROC Means, and review the output, but it looks to me like PROC means does not work on character fields.

suggestions?

Thanks,

Gareth Keenan
