We have a column of dates in a four digit number format currently (9501). We need this recoded to display something resembeling: Jan,1995 but we can't figure out the function or expression to do so. Any suggestions?? Thanks!! version 7.1

Recommend making and actual date valued variable. Is that value supposed to be YYMM (year and month?) If so do have ANY years with values less than 20 that would indicate 1915 instead of 2015? If so how do you tell the actual year?
data junk; date= 9501; SASdate= mdy( mod(date,100),1,int(date/100)); Format sasdate MONYY7.; run; proc print; run;

Alternatively there is also an informat which can read such strings.
data sample; have=9501; want=input(put(have,4.),yymmn4.); format want monyy7.; run;
