I have to match 2 data sets by id and date/time. One data set has a single datetime var, the second data set has 6 vars: year, month, day, hour, minute, second.
My suggestion is for a single function to make a datetime var from the 6 components.
Call it either MDYHMS or YMDHMS (or do both). Similar to the MDY function where you provide the appropriate data.
I know I can use x=DHMS(MDY(month, day, year), hour, minute, second); but my suggestion would be cleaner.
