Subject   st: How to show formatted date variable in graph
Date   Mon, 17 Oct 2011 18:48:11 +0100

i have a variable for the quarter of the year in which a clinic visit occurred which i have formatted thus:

quarter 151 when formatted appears as 1997q4.

when i create a table or graph of visits the number 151 appears rather than 1997q4.

how to i get 1997q4 into the table and graph.

probably simple but i can't thing how, and searching did not help.

thanks.

Paul
