Hello,
try using -destring- (Stata 7) instead of real()

Hi there,
I have converted a 15 digit string into a numerical number by using real()
command. My problem is that now the data is read as floats while I want it
to be in doubles as the string happens to be the caseId of my data. How do I
proceed??
Thanks
Kompal
