1. Hassle the data providers! 
2. Test typical cases with conversion functions or -display- with
guessed formats.

I also have some date variables that do not have 
any format and are stored as 'long'. How does one know what format was 
used and how to convert them in this case? Would one need to try all 
possible cases?
