Hello SAS_L, I have the export code as shown here to export the SAS dataset mydata into a text (.txt) file.PROC EXPORT DATA= ...OUTFILE="E:\ ... \ mydata.txt...;run; I would like to be able to append today's date (Sep 22 2009) to mydata as shown below:PROC EXPORT DATA= ...OUTFILE="E:\ ... \ mydata_20090922_txt.txt...;run; The day the above PROC EXPORT is executed it should automatically place the day's date. How can I do this? If the name mydata_20090922_txt cannot be automated how aboutsome variation of it? mydata_20090922 or mydata20090922, etc. Thank you T
