That is a nice solution. Incidentally, the docs for the ncyear fnc say it

returns an integer variable labelled with labels such as "1952/53"

However, I tried it in Stata 8 and got no such labels; but then I tried it in Stata 7 and the labels were there. Could some change in Stata 8 have zapped the labels?
