Subject: Can I Ignore the Time Part Safely without affect the value
Content-Type: text/plain; charset=ISO-8859-1
I am changing the datetime Variable which is in format of YYYY-MM-DDTHH:SS
(Eg: 2007-01-29T10:27) into numerical variable to calculate study day
variable (SDTM standards) , While converting them to numerical values I am
using informat of yymmdd10. Using this informat I am getting numerical
value but I am ignoring the time part, is it right way of doing ?? is it
going to make any difference in numerical value of the date ??? I can't
think of possible implication of this , I am thinking that if the time
changes to 24 Hr automatically it would be another day Right ??
Any Inputs ??
