RE: st: Re: How To get 4-digit Year Number

Dear Nick Cox,

By the way, what if the dates are in other forms, such as 11/1937, or 23101988, etc. ?

I think of something like :

generate qyr = date(dateinc, "mdy" | "my" | "string-here" | etc. )

to read and then do other steps. But I can't make it work, at least with format "my" ?

Even when using qyr = monthly(dateinc) if (some specific conditions), I can't get the 4-digit year number from format "my".

Thanks again in advance.
