Officially, Intck().But in your case, '-' will be sufficient.

data have;

input bday mmddyy8.;

format bday mmddyy8.;

cards;

11/12/87

12/04/56

03/06/79

04/05/94

03/07/99

03/07/99

;

data want;

set have;

ageindays=intck('day',bday,today());

ageindays_=date()-bday;

run;

proc print;run;

I choose to use month/day/year to inteprete your data, although it can be intepreted in other ways as well.
