I have a variable that refers to a date but it is in character format
($39.). The values of this variable are coded differently, example:
11/30/02 or 12/04 or 37294. I need to convert this variable to become date
variable with a sas date format, say date=mdy(datevar1) (or elapsed number
of days from Jan 1, 1960).
I hope you could help.
Thanks so much.
