I am trying to convert a Character date DDMonYYY format to a SASDATE to compare against a Raw date read in as ccyymmdd and converted to SASDATE. I tried using INPUT function as in Sample 24591 using Date9, but it does not work. I get "Invalid argument to INPUT function at Line ### Column ##'. When I PUT the string data into the SASLOG it shows that it matches. The new data field using the INPUT function dusplays as missing.

It would help to show the code actually used. I would say the most likely culprit are some specific values are not valid dates: 30FEB2014 for instance.
Show an entire error message.
