It appears that the mask for the date() function in version 9 was required to be lower case.

  gen dateval=date(event_date, "dmy")

And that this changed to upper case (for month, day, and year designation) with the addition of time to Stata dates in version 10, with lower case m representing minutes.

  gen dateval=date(event_date, "DMY")

Lisa sent me her dataset privately, and Paul`s solution worked w/o a hitch. She also revealed that she uses Stata Intercooled 9.1. Are there significant differences with regard to date handling btw Stata 9 and 10?
