I have set up a sas program to runn automatically and create an XPT file. How can I update this xpt file name to have current date in the name in order to identify the xpt ?
Any suggestion would be helpful
Thanks, but how do I assign this to the filename? for eg xpt name XXXXXX_&sysdate9...xpt should be create in filename trfile 'C:\SAS\XXXXXX_&sysdate9...xpt. Is this possible or there is some other means of doing it?
Thanks a lot. I just missed to try that simple step!!!! Thanks, anyways.
One more question:
How do we handle the missing values in a field(VSTMD) thats a varchar datatype and that has to be written into a numeric SAS date field? Since it is a "null" value, SAS considers as both character and numeric variable. How can this be resolved?
