SAS TIMESTAMP

Hi Iam trying To load data from SAS datasets into a schema in OC for
processing with eLoader. But time is showing as 'TIMESTAMP'.
Here not showing time, just showing a word as TIMESTAMP.
Could you please resolve my code:-

%let userid=%sysget(USERID);
%let passwd=%sysget(PASSWD);
%let dbpath=OCGVPRD1;
%let sasdir=%sysget(FNAME);
%let exclude=%sysget(VIEW);

%put exclude=&exclude;

libname drop oracle user= &userid
password= &passwd
path = "&dbpath" ;
proc datasets lib=drop
kill;
quit;
run;

libname cdwdir oracle user= "&userid"
password= "&passwd"
path = "&dbpath" ;

libname source "&SASDIR";

%macro search(path);
%local filrf rc did memct filename file i path;

%let filrf=mydir;
%let rc=%sysfunc(filename(filrf,&path));
%let did=%sysfunc(dopen(&filrf));
%let memct=%sysfunc(dnum(&did));
%do i=1 %to &memct;
%let filename=%sysfunc(dread(&did,&i));
%let file=%scan(&filename,1,.);
%if %index(%upcase(&filename),.SAS7BDAT) %then %do;

proc sql;
/* drop table cdwdir.&file; */

create table cdwdir.&file as
select * from source.&file;

quit;

proc sql;
connect to oracle (user= &userid
password= &passwd
path = "&dbpath");
execute (grant select on &file
to e_usr) by oracle;
disconnect from oracle;
quit;

%end;
%end;
%let rc=%sysfunc(dclose(&did));
%let rc=%sysfunc(filename(filrf));
%mend;

Re: SAS TIMESTAMP

What's unclear from the OP submission - "But time is showing as 'TIMESTAMP'."

What time variable is showing up as TIMESTAMP?

It would be useful to see SAS log with generated diagnostics and/or resolved macro code and variables which demonstrates the specific problem symptom encountered.

Re: SAS TIMESTAMP

Thanks Scott,
No isue from sas side, when i sending to oracle clinical then showing the word as TIMESTAMP instead of dates for all date filelds.
Thanks,

Re: SAS TIMESTAMP

Help explain what you mean by: "...showing the word as TIMESTAMP...".

I suspect you will want to share your "generated" SAS code in a log with all available diagnostics - post another reply here with the info pasted.

Some key SAS code to help reveal what's useful:

OPTIONS SOURCE SOURCE2 MACROGEN SYMBOLGEN MPRINT;

Re: SAS TIMESTAMP

try with the option "sasdateformat" in connection statement. Check in page no 5.
