Yes,

You can search for terms like difference between to times or dates and
could have found the following example from Nick Cox discussion on a
similar topic in 2011. You should be careful as the following might
work in its original where DMY is YMD also and Stata help on -help
datetime translation-

gen long daysbetween = date(enddate, "DMY") - date(startdate, "DMY")

The above example is taken from
