Hi All

I need to create a new date based on todays today - so today is May, the new date should default to the 25th of June. If we are in June, the new date should default to 25th July.

I was thinking of using the :

nextMon = INTNX( 'Mon', Month(Today()), 1, 'S' );

to give me next month, but not sure how to create a value of 25Jun10

Thanks for your help.

You only want to specify TODAY() for 2nd argument to INTNX and use a suitable SAS DATE output format.

You can do the same in data step if that is more appropriate for your situation.

13 %put NextMonth25 = %sysfunc(INTNX(Mon,"25%sysfunc(Today(),monyy5.)"d,1,S),date9.);
NextMonth25 = 25JUN2010

You were almost there with your code.
The 25th day of the next month is the first day + 24 days:

next_mon=intnx('month',today(),1) + 24;
