Subject:      Date question: I know this is quite simple...
Content-Type: text/plain; charset="us-ascii"

...but it is getting very late over here and also because of that I cannot find a way out!

I have Var1 containing dates as number (difference between date of interested and January 1st, 1900).

So the data I am facing are:

DATA LIST / VAR1 (A12). BEGIN DATA 37183 37202 37391 END DATA.

How do I get a date variable diplaying instead (European format, that is dd/mm/yyyy):

20/10/2001 08/11/2001 16/05/2002


Thank you for you assistance.
