Subject:   Re: convert date to sas date

I am not sure if it is the best way to handle but it works. As far as I know, there is no direct way to handle this type of date in SAS:

data x ; x = '5 February 2004' ; sasdate = input(put(input(scan(x,1),2.),z2.) || substr(scan(x,2),1,3) || scan(x,3),date9.) ; run ;
