I imported an excel workbook that contains dates. SAS imported them using the format date9. However, when I go to use the datepart function, I get 0 for every observation.
Any help in getting SAS to read the dates correctly? I need to extract the year and month of each entry.

datepart() -> converts DATETIME variables to date variables
year()-> extracts year from date variable
month()-> extracts month from date variable
YYMMN6. format will change the format from date9. (01Jan2012) to 201206.
format your_date yymmn6.;
