I cannot see anything wrong with your command at all. As you show (and I verified) it works great with the -tsline2- example you show, and I tried variations of inserting bad dates and could not reproduce this error. Perhaps this is one for tech support?

Best luck!

Hi all,

I am attempting the following command:
tsline y, ttick(01jan2000 31dec2000)

But I get the following error:
'invalid ticklist "01jan2000" must be number'

Which is weird, because this command works fine:

sysuse tsline2, clear
tsset day
tsline calories, ttick(28nov2002 25dec2002, tpos(in)) ttext(3470
28nov2002 "thanks" 3470 25dec2002 "x-mas", orient(vert))

What am I doing wrong?
