I want to change the variable type from Char to Num.
How is it possible?
CREATE TABLE WORK.query AS
SELECT Datum , Menge FROM DEMAND.DEMAND ORDER BY sortkey(Datum, "de");
PROC DATASETS NOLIST NODETAILS;
CONTENTS DATA=WORK.query OUT=WORK.details;
PROC PRINT DATA=WORK.details;

Of what, the DATUM variable? If so then input() is the one you want:
proc sql; create table QUERY as select input(DATUM,yymmdd10.) as DATE, MENGE from DEMAND.DMAND order by DATE; quit;
You cannot change the type of a variable, you need to create a new variable - which is what the select as is actually doing behind the scene.
