A Beginner's Guide to SAS Date and Time Variables, Functions, and Formats

About the webinar

One of the most difficult things for beginners to learn is how SAS handles date values, date/time values and time values. This talk will help beginners identify which SAS variables contain dates, date/time values and time values, and also help understand how formatting of these variables works.

Join us to learn how to:

  • Identify which variables are date values, date/time values or time values
  • Work with SAS functions INTNX and INTCK to change the values into a date (or date/time or time) in the past or future and compute number of time intervals
  • Show how formats and informats can change the appearance of the value
