Hi again,
I want to calculate the number of days elapsed between date of
patients visits to the clinic, patients are expected to come each 4th
week, i.e. week4, week8, week12 etc..
I have date of visit (var date) and dummy variable for weeks, i.e.
week4 (1 or 0), week8 (1 or 0)

I am trying to generate new variable to calculate n of days between
week8 and week4, by saying
dayat8 = (date if week4==1) - (date if week8==1)
it does not work

Any tips?
Thank you in advance and best regards
ziad
