Hi Victor,

If the only date you need to code as system missing is the 2-jan-1800 one, the following will work as written.

IF datevar = date.dmy(2,1,1800) datevar=$sysmis. EXE.

If you need to recode as system missing all dates less than a particular date, change the equal sign and the numbers representing the cut-off point, for example:

IF datevar < date.dmy(1,1,1850) datevar=$sysmis. EXE.

Which would code all dates prior to Jan. 1, 1850 as system missing.
