Betreff: st: display minutes and seconds?

I've read in some dates/times, and would like to be able to see not only 
month-date-year, but also hours:minutes:seconds. I think I can see how to 
extract these if I want to compose a string, but it would be useful to see 
such details in the data editor. Is there a way to format? (In looking for 
a solution, I'm starting to think not.)
I'm a novice STATA user, running STATA-11.
