Hi,

Im trying to change the date from dd/mm/yyyy to yyyy but my code doens't work. The field presents the data dd/mm/yyyy but the column properties show different.

The column properties are -

length 8

format ddmmyy

informat 10.

My code -

proc sql;

create table work.green as

select

curr_term_exp as maturity format=yyyy.

from work.green;

quit;

Any ideas please?

If you want to display it differently then just attach the YEAR format.

If you want to make a new variable that only has year then use the YEAR() function.
