Hi,

i would be very grateful if anyone can help me! I performed an event history study using EVENTUS, and would like to merge (or join) the results back into my stata dataset. I will need to join by Firm and Date. 

The Eventus output files has the date in the format, the # of days since 1/1/60 (for example 8614). I have figured out how to make this date look like a caledar date. The date now visually looks the same as my stata date. However, stata fails to match the dates. There must be something going on behind the scenes, but i can't figure out what. 

Has anyone had this experience? Do you have a do file that might help me (or a few lines of code?)

Thank you so very much,
Susan
