Dear Statalisters
I have a dataset in which the date of birth(dob) is entered in the
format 01.08.45(dd.mm.yy). Stata has recognised this as a string (str11)
variable. Is there an easier way of making this as date format or do I
have to painfully retype all the values in the variable as dates
recognised by STATA?
Any help will be appreciated.
Thanks in advance
ganesh
