Dear all,

I moved my data from Eviews to STATA and I am having difficulty in -tsset-
the data. The variable "date" imported and displayed as "01 Dec 90". I use

.format date %dm/y

and the variable is now displayed as "Dec/90". However, when I -tsset- the
data using

.tsset date, monthly

STATA gives the message:

. tsset date, monthly
        time variable:  date, 2901m1 to 3159m9, but with gaps

But there is no gap in my monthly series. I could not do -dfuller- on the
dataset, and the message is:

. dfuller m1
no observations
r(2000);

I read the help online and the time series manual but couldn't find any
solution.

Thanks,

Ky Tran
