Lisa,

as Michael and Gary have said, use the lowercase version of Paul`s initial
solution as 

*************
gen dateval=date(event_date, "dmy")
*************

When I set the interpreter to -version 9.1- in Stata 10.1, this solution
works while the uppercase solution generates all missings (but not an error
message)...

The mask in the -date()- function has changed from lower case [c 
(stata_version) <= 9] to upper case [c(stata_version) == 10].  Prior  
discussions can be found, for example, at:

<http://www.stata.com/statalist/archive/2007-10/msg01089.html> (in  
the example code)
<http://www.stata.com/statalist/archive/2008-06/msg00429.html>
<http://www.stata.com/statalist/archive/2008-06/msg00437.html>
<http://www.stata.com/statalist/archive/2009-03/msg01072.html> (in  
the postscript)

Hope this helps,
Mike
