Subject:      Date problem
Content-Type: text/plain; charset=us-ascii


I have a problem with date in my dataset. In fact, I have kind of following observations (character format, we read it as day/month/year):

9/1/1980 10/1/1980 11//1/1980 14/01/80 15/01/80 1/2/1980 2/2/1980 3/2/1980

Of course, the serie is much longer in my real dataset. I want to know how to convert it to a usable date observation because the date is important for my estimation.

Any suggestion and help will be very appreciated.
