I am using the following code to get the month component and it is returning a value of 11 for the current date 2016/06/21

  
DTPART(&MDYY, MONTH)


The output looks like

LoadMonth LoadDate
11 06/21/2016

Where LoadDate = &MDYY

Any ideas what I am doing wrong?

&DATEM gave me the value of 6 which is at least correct. I am wondering why the DTPART and DPART functions were not returning the correct values?

I think that the reason is because &MDYY is not a date/date time format such as explained in the F1-Help of DTPART:
Syntax: How to Return a Date or Date-Time Component in Integer Format
DTPART(date, component)
where:

date
Date or date-time

Is the date in standard date or date-time format.

component
Keyword

Is the component to extract in integer format. Valid components (and values) are:

YEAR (1-9999).
QUARTER (1-4).
MONTH (1-12).
WEEK (of the year, 1-53). This is affected by the WEEKFIRST setting.
DAY (of the Month, 1-31). 
DAY_OF_YEAR (1-366).
WEEKDAY (day of the week, 1-7). This is affected by the WEEKFIRST setting.
HOUR (0-23).
MINUTE (0-59).
SECOND (0-59.)
MILLISECOND (0-999).
MICROSECOND (0-999999).

Here a sample:
DEFINE FILE EMPDATA
MTH/I2 = DTPART(HIREDATE, MONTH); 
END
TABLE FILE EMPDATA
PRINT HIREDATE MTH
BY  PIN 
ON TABLE SET PAGE NOPAGE
END

In Dialogue Manager, &YYMD works, if it's in quotes:

-SET &CURR_MTH = DTPART('&YYMD', MONTH);
-TYPE &CURR_MTH

Hi Trudy,

In Dialog Manager command, its a good practice if you first convert it into the standard date format and then extract Month from it,

-SET &E_MONTH = DTPART(DATECVT(&MDYY,'I8MDYY','MDYY'),MONTH);
-TYPE &E_MONTH

Thanks
