When importing my excel sheet, the date/time conversion is not correct. Only method that worked was converting it into CSV file but then I would have to format the rest of the columns.
I also tried "41000" method of -21916 but that didn't work. Below is a screenshot of the excel and the values it looks like after importing.
Someone please help import the correct dates, Thanks.

"but that didn't work" is not a useful description of what went wrong. SAS converts some date variables when it recognizes an Excel date format, but it misses some. You can either change the format in Excel so that it is recognized by SAS as a date format, or do your own convversion in SAS after importing.
