Subject:      MS Access to SAS Date Interpretation
Content-Type: text/plain; charset="us-ascii"

I received a data set from an external source, created by a 6.12 ver of SAS, which in turn was exported into an MS Access table. The dates are listed in a DDMMMYY format, and as MS Access uses different nomenclature, are stored as character rather than date/time variables. I am now trying to import these data sets into my ver 8 SAS and am having trouble getting these fields to be recognized as dates. Any suggestions as to how to convert these character values to a date SAS recognizes would be much appreciated.

Kind regards,
