This message suggests that you are concatenating data sets and that at least one of them has date stored as a numeric variable and at least one has it as a character variable.
Were these data sets, by chance, read from Excel files? One of the problems in concatenating multiple sets that came from Excel is that if a normally numeric variable is blank for more than the number of guessing rows, it will be set to character.
Please tell us (the list) a little more about what you are doing.
