I'm working with SAS 9.3 and having trouble. I am trying to figure out the age of people by subtracting everyone's date of birth from their interview date. Here is the syntax I have created in order to create the bday and interview variables along with the error messages that are haunting me.
bday = mdy (abthmo abthdy abthyr) ;
interv = mdy (pintmo pintda pintyr) ;
ERROR 388-185: Expecting an arithmetic operator.
ERROR 202-322: the option or parameter is not recognized and will be ignored.
ERROR 71-185: The MDY function call does not have enough arguments.
