A batch (non-interactive) job is submitted on Wednesday, 20 January 1999 (SAS date 14264). The program completes the following day.
The following code is the last step in the SAS program:
call symput ('mdate',input("&sysdate", date7.));
why the value of macro variable mdate is 14264, not 14265?
I think the program is completed the following day, so &sysdate should be in accord with the current date which is Thursday, 21 January 1999(SAS date 14265).
Thank you guys.
