Hi All,

Looking for some help converting my string data to a %td.

My date is a str11 as follows:

| surgery_d~e |
|-------------|
1. | 20-Jun-2005 |
2. | 22-Mar-2005 |
3. | 29-Nov-2005 |
4. | 18-Apr-2006 |
5. | 28-Sep-2004 |

When I try to convert this is a date, gen mydate=date( surgery_date, "mdy")

I just get a variable with all values missing.

Any help?

Thanks!
