Separator
Separator is optional. If specified, it can be up to 120 bytes, composed of non-alphabetic characters. Symbol table values, such as <CR>, can be used to indicate non-printable characters.

When DateUnit has a variable length (M, MONTH, D, DAY), a Separator must follow that DateUnit if data follows.
