RE: st: writing programs in stata

basically I have dates that are represented in string format that indicate the year, date, and the month in that order like 'xxxxx' I need to convert them into proper dates like 'xx/xx/xxxx' so that I can manipulate them. Then I want to work with the dates to get many other parameters I need for by a given date/week/month/year from there.

thanks.
