When I use XML Engine to read and wirte a xml file.I found the issue.
libname test xml "xmltest.xml";
libname test clear;
X in a is Character,X in b is DateTime.
Any options can retain the X as character in b?

Is this an article or a question? If this is a question, then it doesn't belong here. Also, if this is a question, you have 2 objects named "a" -- you have the SAS dataset WORK.A and you have the TEST.A XML file that you create with the XML libname engine. In your "article" you say that "X in a is Character, X in b is DateTime". When you refer to just a, I think of WORK.A -- do you mean that X created in WORK.A is character??? Where is the rest of your article???
PS...have you tried a LENGTH statement when you create WORK.B???
length x $5;
