Hi,

I have a question about SAS basic procedure, how to convert time like "2014-03-17 16:58:39.512986+0000" to a time only with day(month), hour and minute. Like "03-17 16:58"

Thanks so much!

HoHo. You are luck you have SAS.

Code: Program

proc format;
picture fmt
other='%0m-%0d %0H:%0M'(datatype=datetime);
run;
data x;
a="2014-03-17 16:58:39.512986+0000";
b=input(scan(a,1,'.'),anydtdtm24.);
format b fmt12.;
run;
proc print;run;

Hi,

If its just character you want (and should still sort correctly:

new_var=substr(dt,6,11);
