I think -rowsort- is your friend:

  ssc install rowsort
  rowsort Date1 Date2 Date3 Date4, gen(ndate1 ndate2 ndate3 ndate4)

Is there a way to sort or reorder dates using the foreach
command--perhaps using the egen function in the loop or something?

How do I get:

Date1 Date2 Date3 Date4

23July1997 01Jan1997 12Sept1997 03Feb1997

to be ordered thusly:

Date1 Date2 Date3 Date4
01Jan1997 03Feb1997 23July1997 12Sept1997
