I have a date format like below example. If i want to convert in MMDDYY10. Using DATEPART function it is not working

 

date='March 29, 2019 5:00:00 AM GMT+01:00';

 

Do we have any alternate way to convert character date to date format?

Just to verify. The date from your example is a character value and you want to transform it into a sas date (numeric)?
