I agree with Michael. From the variable descriptions you posted one
can see that the values of exitdate are somehow labeled. As Michael
suggested before you should try the following:

label list exitdate

//To get real dates you could do then:

decode exitdate, gen(str_exitdate)
label values exitdate
replace exitdate = date(str_exitdate,"mdy")
drop str_exitdate

..then you may perform you data replacement for the dates with
year(exitdate)==2006

Regards
Sebastian
