Oh, The Horror, The Horror...
SAS Date conversions. I don't get it, I don't get it, I don't get it.
Did I tell ya that I don't get it. I have tried, but I don't get SAS
I know that a SAS date is some number from 01Jan1960. After that, it's
all down hill. :-(
I have a Date field that the record layout says is Type-Character,
INPUT @125 CRDATE $4.; (I do not have a LENGTH statement)
FORMAT CRDATE MMDDYY8.;
PUT @ 25 CRDATE;
FORMAT CRDATE MMDDYY8.; =20
he SAS System =20
ERROR 48-59: The format $MMDDYY was not found or could not be loaded.
OK. Somehow, I have to convert CRDATE to a SAS data and then output it
so that it will look pretty.
What am I missing.
Thanks In Advance
