If I remember correctly, version 8 could not deal with run-together dates like this

download the -todate- file from ssc (when connected to the internet, type -ssc install todate- on the Stata command line)

Dear all:

variable "date" is str8   %9s (one example:19861230). I would like to use gen begin=date(date,"YMD") to get elapsed dates but stata does not put any values in variable "begin" (only missings).

Hope someone can help me. I use stata 8.
