Nick I have some more questions about time and date.

I have read through the help file but it is not clear to me what is the difference of %tc and %tC

I have converted my data to YMDhms and it works

Just for my practise I have also split the variable and converted the two splits into date and time variable form strings

I have entries for the same date but for morning as well as afternoon.

How will I separate them in AM and PM?

Is it something like:
Gen time2= AM if time1 >=00:00:00 & time1<=12:00:00
Replace time2=PM if time1>12:00:00 &time1<00:00:00

That is no problem: it is in many ways the easiest and best way to import dates and/or  times into Stata.
