Stata’s new Data Editor makes viewing and manipulating your data easier
than ever. New features and benefits include
- A complete audit trail. Every action you perform in the Data
Editor that affects the data generates a corresponding Stata
command that could be run from the Command window or a do-file to
replicate your work, promoting reproducible work.
- A live view onto the data. You can now have the Data Editor open
while you enter commands in the Command window, run do-files, use
dialog boxes, edit graphs, etc. Changes to the data are
reflected in the Data Editor as soon as Stata is done executing
- Multiple levels of undo. At any point while working in the Data
Editor, you can take a “snapshot” of the data. Continue
working. If you make a mistake or do not like your changes,
revert to a previous snapshot.
- Observation filtering. View only the observations you want by
filtering based on if or in conditions. If you
filter observations and change one or more of the variables in
the expression, the view updates immediately. You can also
view only the variables you want by hiding columns.
