# Using Dates Functions find days in the month prior to current month

Dear All,

I would like to write a SAS program to get the current date and determine number of days in the month prior to current month.

Find difference in days, months, and years between. Is it possible using SAS ?

Thanks a lot for help.

Regards,

S Ravuri.

Just use the INTNX function as below.  This will subtract the 1st of the previous month from the 1st of the current month.

data num_days;

a=today();

prev_month=intnx('month',a,0)-intnx('month',a,-1);

run;
