What kind of a variable do you want the second part to be? If it should be a
string, you could just -split- the thing:


*************
clear*

input str30 myvar
"30dec1999 08:50:00"
end

split myvar
l
*************

Hello,

I have a date variable that looks like this:

30dec1999 08:50:00

and I want to extract the hour, minutes, and seconds part of it, like this:

08:50:00

I just can't seem to get it done. Any help much appreciated. Thanks.

Raoul
