You are correct. This is a basic question that can be answered by
reading the help. In addition to Martin Weiss' answers, the function
-dofc()- may be what you need.

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...
