I hate to SAS you all, but what I'm looking for is this:

gen DATE=mdy(mon_var,day_var,yr_var)          we've got this in Stata
TIME=hms(hr_var,min_var,sec_var)              SAS code
DATETIME=dhms(DATE,hr_var,min_var,sec_var)    SAS code

As Kit noted, I need to be able to calculate the difference between two
date/time points and display it in a meaningful way which may include
hours, minutes and seconds.
