i have a macro varialbe &file_dt .
it resolves in the log as 2014-05-09.
i want to use this date for computation purposes.
When I try converting it into a numerical sas value like shown below
T DOES NOT AVE ANY VALUE.
LOG HAS ERROR MESSAGE 'NUMERIC VALUES CONVERTED TO CHARACTER VALUE "
why is this so ?
thanks in advance.
