Hmmm... but if my date variables are strings (MMYY)
would the inrange function take the range to be alphanumeric and
evaluated from left to right?

e.g. inrange("`v'", date1, date2) for date1="0108" and date2="0708"
would declare "0707" to be in the range?

This would be a problem, but the blunt solution of generating the
intervening dates would avoid it.
