Hi

The issue is that SAS is not recognizing the  dates as you are using them... Try change the code as follows: (note: EArlier date first)


select count(*),LOAD_DTE from aa where LOAD_DTE between
"23nov2011"d and 23jan2012"d ;
0

PS:
You may need a GROUP  statement:

select count(*),LOAD_DTE from aa where LOAD_DTE between
"23Nov2011"  and "23Jan2012"d
Group by LOAD_DTE;
