Sorry for this novice question ,but been searching by findit, ssc and statalist without luck(using Stata7SE):

I got data on HIV Non Hodgkin lymphoma patients with multiple date variables: I would like to generate a new datevariable which keeps the date of the time-variable, which has the last date recorded for each patient.There are several missing date values within each variable
e.g:the timevariables which could be the last followup are deaddat, opddat,hospdat,hivrnadat,statlymdat,lostdat

Any ideas for a simple solution?

Jonathan
