I believe that the ddMONyyyy (date9.) formatted &sysdate9 was a patch that was made available with TS060 (which is why Nancy's worked). If you have 6.12 with a release before TS060, then &sysdate9 will not be available (and it won't be in any of the SAS 6 manuals). You can probably find the exact details about this at www.sas.com

regards, Laurie
