Is there a way to convert a packed decimal format date into Julian Date?

I need to convert the value below 20061208 into a date format that SAS can understand.

Code:
../.?
00628
2010C


I need this to be able to calculate the difference between this date (20061208) and today's date (DATE()).

Thanks!

sas_dt = input(put(pd_dt,z8.),yymm8.);
format sas_dt yymmdd10.;
diff = today()-sas_dt;
run;

proc print data=dates;
run;
