Hi Mike, May be this can help. The following macro takes Year as input parameter and prints the Dates of Last Friday of every month for that particular year.

%macro LastFriday(year); data temp ; start_dt = "01Jan&year"d; end_dt = "31Dec&year"d;

do i = start_dt to end_dt; m = month(i); *-- 1-12 ; if weekday(i) = 6 then do; x = i; output; end; else continue; end; run;

proc sort data = temp out = temp2; by m; run;

data temp2; set temp; by m; if last.m; run;

proc print data = temp2 (keep = x); format x date9.; run; %mend;


Regards, Amar.
