Hi All,

Can you someone please help me with below code:

Code:

%GLOBAL DATE01 DATE02;                                 
DATA _NULL_ ;                                           
  DD = DAY(TODAY());                                   
  ED1 = INTNX('MONTH',TODAY(),-1,'E');                 
  ED2 = COMPRESS(PUT(ED1,YYMMDD10.),'-');               
  CALL SYMPUT ('DATE02',ED2);                           
  PUT 'DD        : ' DD                 ;               
  PUT 'ED1       : ' ED1 ;                             
  PUT 'ED2       : ' ED2 ;                             
  PUT 'DATE02    : ' &DATE02 ;                         
RUN ;                                                   


I am trying to assign the last date of previous month to global variable but DATE02 is not getting populated. No error message.

Best Regards,

A macro variable created by SYMPUT will not be available until after this DATA step finishes.

After this step, use this to see the value:

%put DATE02 = &DATE02;

Also, I do not see what GLOBAL is needed for.
