It is imperative that you distinguish btw -format-ting a date variable and
converting it. See -help dates_and_times, mark(converting)- for an intro to
the latter...

Betreff: st: Converting date/clock format to date format?

Hi there,
Could anyone help me with this?
I want to merge two datasets together that both have a 'datereturn' 
variable.
They have different formats however. In one it is a %tc and in the other 
%dD_m_Y.
Where it is %tc format I cannot convert it to a date format...
If I type
format datereturn %dD_m_Y
It displays: 1478563200000
I know this is probably very basic, bu I'd be very grateful for some help...
Thanks a lot!
