Hello Guru's;

Sorry, I just noticed your code.  You never stipulated a variable for SAS to create.  Try something like:

data xyz;

     set web.pmrate (keep= customer datefield);

     week=week(datefield, 'v');

run;

You could use the week function.  i.e.:

WEEK( date <, 'descriptor'> )

If the descriptor is 'V', the result is equivalent to the ISO 8601 week of year definition. The range is to . Week is a leap week. The first week of the year, Week , and the last week of the year, Week or , can include days in another Gregorian calendar year.

If the descriptor is 'W', weeks start on Monday and the range is to . If weeks and exist, they are only partial weeks. Week 52 can be a partial week.
