Subject:   Re: Making a SAS date a character string

I need to know how to put a date value in the form:

ddmmyyyy

No "/"'s attached! Don't ask why, I didn't.

I would like to do it without creating lots of new character variables and input statements or substr commands. Lots of different date fields to deal with.
