OR just use a YEAR4. format for display.

Dummy code obviously as you haven't provided even a data set name:

Proc print data=have;
   var screendate;
   format screendate year4. ;
run;

Not just display, need to use calculation.

Might be interesting to show the calculation involving a year value. Many such might be better done with the Intck or Intnx functions if the calculation involves intervals around dates in any way.
