Hi Listers (sorry for the previous posting, it has nothing to do with the
comments made by William Gould)

I am cleaning data (that's all I seem to be doing) and I am a little
puzzled here. A while ago, I asked on how to identify illegal entries when
a variable takes on values in batches (e.g. 11 to 19 21 to 25 etc). Nick
Cox pointed me to 

. egen OK = eqany(cropcod2), values(110/120 220/227 330/334 440/446)
. list houscode cropcod2 if !OK

This has very well for, however, today I tried  

. egen OK = eqany(inpcode), values(500/505 599 601 1100/1111 /*
. */ 1200/1201 2100/2160/ 2200/2220 2299 2300/2302)
. list houscode inpcode if !OK 

I get an error message;

. egen OK = eqany(inpcode), values(500/505 599 601 1100/1111 /*
> */ 1200/1201 2100/2160 2200/2220 2299 2300/2302)
varlist not allowed
r(101);

Any one familiar with this and a way around it?

Roni
