Hi Ken Higbee Thanks for the help, I will try to explain my problem to you using your example. Lets assume that a b and c are crops and we also know that they can take on a given set of values 1 2 3 4 5 8 9 10 (as such 6 7 and anything greater than 10 should be a problem and that's what I want to flash out) If we deal with them one by one Starting with a and going thru . egen ain = eqany(a), v(1/5 8/10) /*ain means a is in range*/ . list a if !ain /*all observations out of range*/ a 6. 6 7. 7 . . egen bin = eqany(b), v(1/5 8/10) . list b if !bin b 4. 6 5. 7 9. 11 10. 12 . . egen cin = eqany(c), v(1/5 8/10) . list c if !cin c 2. 6 3. 7 7. 11 8. 12 9. 13 10. 14 Now, here is my thinking, since a b and c take on the same range of values, instead of going thru the above, I thought that (as you suggested) . egen z = eqany(a b c) , v(1/5 8/10) should list all the a's b's and c's out of the range, however, this is what I get . egen z = eqany(a b c) , v(1/5 8/10) . list if !z a b c z Nothing is listed. So my question is that am I misusing the command?
