I have what I hope are a few simple questions regarding a fragmented
database I'm trying to manipulate in stata.

1. Is there a way to convert the following date format (1/1/1975) into
a date form that stata will recognize?

2.  Is it possible to separate a single string field separated by
commas into 2 separate fields (i.e. Dallas, TX into Dallas in one
field and TX in another)?  What about if a space was between the two
fields (i.e. Dallas TX into two fields - one with Dallas and the other
with TX)?

Thank you in advance.
