Subject: st: displaying summary statistics of date variables


Is there a way to display summary statistics of (elapsed) date variables
in  date format? For example, summary  of the following date variable
produces output which is difficult to interpret:  What, for example, is the
latest  date in variable "date"?  15337 is difficult to interpret.

  I have checked the manuals, the web site, and the list archives to no
avail.

Thanks,
Devra
