st: Time/Date Functions
I apologize in advance b/c I think the answer must be obvious - but I can't seem to make this work and it is driving me nuts.
I am trying to do the following:
tempvar time; ge `time' = mdy(month, day, year); ge junk = month(`time');
The var `time' works fine. But I get only missing values for junk. What am I being thickheaded about?
