I am trying to convert a date (January 1st 2003) into a macro using 
-display- that I could use to compare the result with a variable
'edate1' that contains dates (basically to drop cases if 'edate1' is
smaller than January 1st 2003). The code that I used (see below) does
not work (Stata executes the first line and displays the converted date
but stops there). I would appreciate your input.



display d(01jan2003) _request(_startd)
drop if edate1<`startd'
