I have a date field that has some blank records in it. Right now it is a number with a format / informant of DATE9. I am going to output this SAS dataset as a flat file. When the file goes back it will go back as a YYMMDDN8 which I am doing with a put statement. How can I set those records that are blank to be all zeros? I need to send back as 00000000 if the record is blank.
