Re: Reg:Date format

Suggest you open a new forum post for each question, ideally after checking available SAS documentation.

There are several SAS DATE INFORMAT references you may find useful in the SAS Language Dictionary documentation.

Please clarify "...ignore missing.." - there is a MISSING function to check a variable value -- then you can decide whether or not to output an observation -- it's really unclear the processing that you want to occur for this condition.
