Hi everyone,

I have a file that has a variable date using the format YYMMDD, and I
haven't been able to import it as a date format to Stata. I've been using
the -infix- command. I don't have any problem to import it as number but
then I would loose the date information. For instance, I have one
observation that has 000112, i.e., 2000/01/12 and Stata reads it as 112...
If anyone could give a idea of how to solve this issue, I would be greatly
appreciated.

Best,
