I'm relatively new to SAS programming having had experience with MSSQL, MySQL mostly.
I am trying to get the month as a string from a date in the format 'mm'.
For example: 01JAN2017 would result in '01'. 01FEB2017 would result in '02' etc.
I need the preceding 0 for months 1-9
I have been looking at PUT function(?) to do this but cannot find a format that is going to do what I need it to do.
Anyone have any solution or ideas to point me in the right direction?
