What is 'Z'?
data _NULL_; a="2012-07-07T20:44:30.293Z"; b=input(scan(a,1,'T'),YYMMDD10.); put b= date9.; c=input(compress(scan(a,2,'T'),'Z'),time12.3); put c= time12.3; d=b*24*60*60 + c; put d= datetime22.3; run; /* end of program */
I think "Z" means "Zulu Time", which is short for Coordinated Universal Time, or what is commonly known as GMT.
So simply discarding it will be OK.
That's an ISO date and there should be informats to handle it directly.
data demo; a="2012-07-07T20:44:30.293Z"; b=input(a, B8601DZ.); format b B8601DZ.; run; proc print;run;
I've a character value which is like "2012-07-07T20:44:30.293Z". I would like to change this format to datetime
Required : 2012-07-07T20:44:30.293Z
I would rather use the extended ISO 8601 formats/informats:
data demo; a="2012-07-07T20:44:30.293Z"; b=input(a,e8601DZ.); format b e8601DZ.; run;
