hi ,

can anybody help me with converting the below code to SQL from SAS ..

I understand that here we have some conversions of the variables into different formats.

but still cannot convert the code ..

please somebody help...

In case some of the code cannot be converted then its fine :) but do provide me what it means if it cannot be converted . Thanks to all who read this and to those who try to reply it :)

data params;
length argsep  $ 1;
argsep = ' ';
argvs  = compbl(trim(symget('SYSPARM')));

arg_date = compress(scan(argvs, 1, argsep),'\.-/ ');
prod_type = compress(scan(argvs, 2, argsep),'\.-/ ');
dataset_name = compress(scan(argvs, 3, argsep),'\.-/ ');

rpt_dt = mdy(input(substr(arg_date,5,2),2.), 1, input(substr(arg_date,1,4),4.));

rptmon  = substr(compress(arg_date,'\.-/ '),1,6);
prptmon = substr(put(intnx('month', rpt_dt, -1, 'b'), yymmddn8.),1,6 );
