If you want to join the time into the date so you can look at fraction of days, I suggest you look at help for -real- and considering breaking the time down into components and then create a fraction then add it to the date variable, as long as that is in dmy format.

The time format is another issue, but you might be able to 
subtring out the date format and convert it with the
strdate procedure.

Assuming that ddate is in the format 03/12/1988,

strdate ddate, s("mdy") y(1999) f(%dmdy)

would return the date in a date format.
