Subject   st: create many variables at once
Date   Mon, 22 Jul 2002 16:01:33 -0400

Perhaps someone can help me with this. I am not a programmer, so please be
explicit.
New question.
I have 19 variables that start with the prefix  me_  and 19 variables that
start with the prefix  ppg_ . They all have other letters after the
underscore, actually the same for each group of 19.

I have to create the following 19 new variables:		newvars=(me_
* var1)+(ppg_ * var1) for each observation in the data set (510)
Is there a way for me to do this in one step. If not, can you please tell me
how?
Thank you,
Elisabeth
