Hi

I have a requirement to check : first date of the current month  & last month's first date +1

 

So today's date is : 2/12/2018

 

I want the first range as : 02/01/2018 ( 2nd jan 2018)

                 second range : 01/02/2018 (1st of feb 2018)

 

I have tried :

 

%LET PRE_MO = %SYSFUNC(INTNX(MONTH, %SYSFUNC(&CURR), -1),DATE9.) ;

 

I am getting PRE_MO  AS  : 01JAN2018  , but I want it be increased by 1

I am trying : R = INTNX(('MONTH',AEENDTC1,0,"BEGINNING")),DATE9. ;    ( to get the first day of this month)

 

But error shows : 

R = INTNX(('MONTH',AEENDTC1,0,"BEGINNING")),DATE9. ;

%LET PRE_MO = %eval(%SYSFUNC(INTNX(MONTH, &CURR, -1,b))+1) ;

%put %sysfunc(putn(&pre_mo,date9.));

Work with dates (and date-time values) as numbers rather than formatted values whenever possible.

 

Use the formatted values only when absolutely necessary, for example when displaying results for human eyes.
