Date, Time, and Datetime data

All Date, Time and Datetime columns are represented in SAS by numeric columns.
The format of the column usually indicates the intended use of the numeric column, but supported formats differ between SAS releases and localized versions. For this reason, when importing a SAS object, the Secure Agent does not attempt to determine whether a numeric column should be interpreted as a Date value, Time value, or Datetime value. You must manually assign these data types in the Field Mapping tab. The required conversion is then done automatically.
