Hi SAS community, I am trying to work with this variable (please see screenshot) which SAS is treating as a "datetime16."  I would like to create a separate date variable that has a format of "01JAN22" and a time variable of "07:26:27".  many thanks

You don't need a new variable for the date. Just assign the format DTDATE7. to this variable. If you want a time variable, use the TIMEPART function.
