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.
