Subject   st: Formating a date to a local macro variable
Date   Fri, 17 Jul 2009 15:10:35 -0400

I have a variable "date" that contains the date that a particular assay was run (the variable is in a data format). I would like to assign the date in a particular observation to a local macro variable (its the same date for all observations). Currently when it does this it assigns it a number in stata date format relative to Jan 1, 1960. Is there a way to assign it to the local macro variable in a way that it will formatted in a "readable" date format?

		quietly sum date if tmp_dp ==`i'
		local date = r(mean)
