I've got a csv file (comma seperated) that I import into CAS to use with SAS VA with the SAS Data explorer (import local file).
In the csv file there are columns that contains dates. When the csv file is loaded into CAS. The date columns are of type varchar. I would like them to be numeric so I can use them as proper dates in my reports.
I've tried different formats: European, Amercian.
Tried different enconding on the import function of Data Explorer.
How can I load dates in a csv to SAS in such a way the become numeric(dates) in SAS.

no reply yet.
But I've "solved" this by using a data plan, that converts the varchar to a date column.
