When using SAS Dates you would write '02JAN2007'd and when using datetime try '02jan07:0:00:00'dt

Whether this will work also depends on what database "AMDEXSTG" is, and how you connect to it (ODBC or SAS/Connect) - it not always that a SAS datetime is translated properly when transformed to another database.
