Hello, Moleps,

I can't reproduce the problem. My Stata responds "104". What version
of Stata are you using (version/flavor/build#)? what are the formats
of the variables? data storage types? what's the origin of the
dataset? (manually inputted, loaded as dta, converted from other file
type, etc) Try discarding formats and subtracting the dates.

generate double v1 = date("22-6-2005", "DMY")
generate double v2 = date("04-10-2005", "DMY")
format v1 %td
format v2 %td
generate v3= v2-v1
list, clean

      var1          v1          v2    v3
  1.      1   22jun2005   04oct2005   104

Best regards, Sergiy Radyakin
