Dear StataListers,

I have the data in following format [plese see below]. Ideally I would
like the data to display without the "__" and ".". I tried using the
'substr' command didn't really doing what I after. This variable is
currently in string format. Unfortunately, encode, recode or replace
didn't work either.

Any tips how to handle this much appreciated.

Thanks,

Susan
