Hi Statalisters,

I have 3 variables; id, date, time.

"date" and "time" both have a storage type of str8 and are both in %9s
display format. I need to sort on "id", "date" and "time" in that
sequence.

I am able to get "date" as float %td, but I am having a problem with
"time". I got "time" as a double %tc, but it obviously comes out with
the date "01jan1960" plus the time. I have over 2 million
observations. I am using Stata 10.

Thanks in advance,

-- 
Hugh
