Hello everyone i am really new to stata and i have an econometrics paper due in a couple days and i have to perform some time series analysis on the data i have.

I am using Monthly data from 2007-12-01 to 2019-10-01 in a "YMD" format, which i have formatted and declared as a time series data

I am trying to create an "Embargo" variable which takes the value of 1 from 2019-01-01 to 2019-10-01 and 0 for all months before that. So i would really appreciate it if someone could provide me with some help in how to go about this dummy variable generating process using a date/period argument.

I have tried several commands but none have seemed to work thus far so any input would be welcomed.
