Hello

What is the way to convert SAS date into char value.

for example:

From SAS data value  of 19FEB2019 I want to get following 3 values (in 3 different columns):

1902 (structure YYMM)

19/02 (structure YY/MM)

2019/02 (sructure YYYY/MM)

 

 

/**Convert SAS date into chat YYMM*/
/**Convert SAS date into chat YY-MM*/
/**Convert SAS date into chat YYYY/MM*/
Data new;
sas_date='19Feb2019';
wanted1=put(sas_date,???.);/*wanted char value 1902*/
wanted2=put(sas_date,???.);/*wanted char value 19-02*/
wanted3=put(sas_date,???.);/*wanted char value 2019/02*/
Run;

Data new;
sas_date='19Feb2019'd;
wanted1=put(sas_date,yymmd7.);/*YYYY-MM*/
wanted2=put(sas_date,yymmn4.);/*YYMM*/
wanted3=put(sas_date,yymmd9.);/*YYYY-MM*/
Run;

I found the error. 

The sas_date was not date....

Maxim 1: Read the Documentation. Scroll down to the "Date" category, and you'll find what you're looking for.

 

Big hint: if the year/month format is called YYMM, what would a developer call the format for month/year?
