Hello,

 

I have imported code below.   But the log page showed error message below.  Please advice how to fix it.

 

Data residences;
      infile  "\\Pathway\ResidencesDates.csv" dlm="," dsd missover lrecl=32000 firstobs=2;
;
input 
      Id
      ResStartMM_1
      ResStartYY_1
      ResStopMM_1
      ResStopYY_1
	  ;
Format  ResStartMM_1 DateMM.;
Format  ResStartYY_1 DateYY.;
Format  ResStopMM_1 DateMM.;
Format  ResStopYY_1 DateYY.;
Label  ResStartMM_1="Residence Start Date Month";
Label  ResStartYY_1="Residence Start Date Year";
Label  ResStopMM_1="Residence Stop Date Month";
Label  ResStopYY_1="Residence Stop Date Year";
RUN;

 

The error message in the Log page:

                                          -------

PROC Star

Months and years are numeric variables that don't need formats.

 

Are you trying to change how they are displayed?  If the answer is no, then just get rid of the format statements.

Below is my CSV file.  It's in the numbers was in general format in Excel.   I'm not sure if you could see that.

 

Id ResStartMM_1 ResStartYY_1 ResStopMM_1 ResStopYY_1

Hi @ybz12003

 

Those are not valid formats.

Try to use date9., etc. (cf https://support.sas.com/documentation/cdl/en/leforinforref/64790/HTML/default/viewer.htm#n16vcb736tg...)

 

Hope that helps.


Cheers,
Damien
