Dear statalisters. I reviewed the FAQ about how to handle dates and I

discovered some interesting functions to deal with dates. I have a little

My dates are dd-mm-yy. I downloaded the "todate" program, and I was
to convert the dates in several files that I have, but other files has

-todate- doesn't require mm-dd-yy order. In fact, it requires that you
specify the order with the pattern option. in your case, ddmmyyy, i.e.
todate adm_date dis_date, p(ddmmyyy) gen(adm_date2 dis_date2)
