I have two dates in SAS.  Both are defined as:
 Num       8    DATE9.    DATE9

Both dates contain  02AUG2011

What is the syntax to compare DATEA to DATEB.  They are not comparing as equal.

I am trying to use this statement:

proc sql undo_policy=none;
        create table C as
        select                           a.mbr_id
            , a.date
            , b.date
            from filea a left join fileb b      
                           on a.mbr_id=bmbr_id      
                            and a.date= b.date;
quit;
