I did the following:

generate fyr2 = string(fyr,"%td")

It works but I now have a sorting problem. With the old fyr 
variable, dates are ordered chronologically. With the new 
fyr2 variable, dates are ordered "alphabetically".

========================================================

Use a sortable date format (year, month, day):

    generate fyr2 = string(fyr,"%tdCCYY-NN-DD")

Best wishes,
Svend
