datasets on both variables, then list both in the -merge- command:

 . merge ssn adate using ...

Thanks, but I just noticed an issue. In one dataset the Social Security Number is in the "standard" format (###-##-####), while in the other it's just a set of straight digits (no hyphens). I guess I need to remove the hyphens in the one set - how do I do that?
