how can I create a personality category that separate in groups of days. One group refers to a crop of the year 2017-2018 and the other refers to the crop 2018-2019. This last group is occuring at this moment, so the last day of this group will be changing every day. So I want that SAS automatically make the necessaries changes in my report, but to do this, it is necessary to create a way to show to SAS how to do this.

My idea is to create a personality category that will change the last day daily automatically. But I'm until don't know how to do this. Anyone has some suggestion?

One way to do this would be to create a "relative day counter". For example, today is 0, yesterday is 1 and so on so these values don't change, only the dates they refer to do. You can then create categories based on the counter.
