No, but it's a fairly simple calculation, just subtract 1 day from the first of the next month and make sure to deal with December dates:

gen newdate=mdy( month(date)+1,1,year(date))-1
replace newdate=mdy(12,31,year(date)) if month(date)==12

It could be done in a single line by combining these using cond()

Hi everyone,

I'm converting a set of dates to the end of the respective month, for
20Jan91 -> 31Jan91
10Mar05 -> 30Mar05

Does anyone knows a function in Stata that does this automatically?
