Hi,

 

I'd like to get the numeric version of '31DEC16:00:00:00'

 

I tried:

 

options yearcutoff=1950;

data null;

a='31DEC16:00:00:00'd;

put 'SAS datetime='a;

put 'formatted datetime='a datetime18.;

run;

 

That gave me 20819 and 01JAN60:05:46:59

 

Thanks.

As you are dealing with Datetime - you need define:

   a='31DEC16:00:00:00'dt;     ( instead   a='31DEC16:00:00:00'd; )
