I want to create a date column (Date_recored) in my output dataset (have) and assign all observations as 01JAN2015 which is a date value.
The following code that I wrote create column which is $9., but I want the column as Date9.
Can someone help please.

Marginally faster to eliminate the assignment statement ... other than that you're just missing a letter:
retain Date_recored "01Jan2015"d;
format date_recored date9.;
