Dear All.

I have two time variables in my dataset - one for year and one for month.

Both of these variables are numeric with Year containing four-digit
year values and month is a two-digit values ranging from 1 to 12.

I would like to combine the Year and month variables into one a time
variable to allow me to work with the dataset as a panel. How do I
recode (or replace) the Year and Semester month to create one.

Specifically, I would like to have one variable that reads 1/2000 for
january 2000, or 2000m1... I do not really mind the format!

Thank you in advance for your help.
