Have you tried something like:

g day = day(startdate)
g month = month(startdate)
g year = year(startdate)

Best wishes

Subject: st: How to separate date variables

Dear colleagues,

I have a variable called startdate, formatted %td. Examples of
observations include 01jun2001. I am trying to creating three
variables correspondingly for day, month, and year. For the
observation above, day=1, month=6, and year=2001.

I am using STATA 11.2 IC.

Any help is welcome.

Many thanks,
