data PrepForTabulate /view=PrepForTabulate;
proc print data = PrepForTabulate;
When I run this code the DateTimeofSale column shows no result as do the Dateof Sale column . I think that i need to convert the date first but really stucked in doing it as I dont have any information on the width of the Date variable. The log says :-
403 data PrepForTabulate /view=PrepForTabulate;
404 set sales;
