The macro $_DATE displays current as 20 Jun 2008. I am looking for a
simply way to remove the spaces.
That is, 20Jun2008.
 
=====================================================================
 
I did not succeed with $_DATE, but with c(current_date) it is:
 
    . local z = subinstr(c(current_date) , " " , "" , .)
    . display "`z'"
    20Jun2008
 
Hope this helps
Svend
