If your date varaible is a sas date variable then this should work:
length newtextvar $ 50 ; /* the lenght here should be a least large enought to take the longest text value plus 12 characters.
newtextvar = catx('\',text, put(date, yymmddD10.);
If the date is not currently a SAS date valued numeric then a conversion will be needed to create one.
