Hi, you can pull the short date form using the below code if the date is in numeric format.

data date;

date=substr(put(today(),date9.),3,3);

run;

If the date is in month name then you can use the substr function to extract the first three letters from the month name like

sunstr(monname,1,3);

Thanks,

Jag

Hi,

You can do this in IMAP by just changing the valid width range to 3(for monname format).

Thanks,

Shiva
