I tried a few things with the date package and this is one of the result I
xd<-c("19-May-00", "22-May-00", "23-May-00", "24-May-00", "25-May-00")
 NA NA NA NA NA
xd<-c("19-May-2000", "22-May-2000", "23-May-2000", "24-May-2000",
 19May2000 22May2000 23May2000 24May2000 25May2000
Any suggestion on how to word around this little problem? Note that this is
a small sample, I would not like to have to do these corrections to hundreds
of dates manualy.
Thanks in advance
