I have an Excel spreadsheet which includes a date column & dates are in the following form:

11/14/2000 16:27:00

That is, the date includes the time of day. I've searched my Stata 9 manuals & all I can find on time is part of c(return) where one can use c(current_time) but this doesn't seem relevant/helpful.

Is there a format that includes time as part of a date, or do I have to parse this field out & create my own separate time variable? What do others do to handle this?

Thanks,

Eric
