hi people  help me

I would like to generate a newvar in my
stata database to using two oldvar in format
date (DDMMYYYY), I
would like the newvar returns the number
of months (time) between
<date1> and <date2>.

How can I achieve this function in stata? In epi-info I get that with
this function:

DEFINE newvar
ASSIGN newvar =MONTHS(date1, date2)

thank you
