Hi,
What is the easiest way to concat 4 numerical variables, each of various
lengths (3-9). I tried :

egen newvar=concat(var1 var2 ...) 

but got a newvar (16 to 18 digits) displayed in exponential format when it's
longer than 16 digits, which I don't want. I tried to change the storage
type and display format but wasn't able to see all 17 or 18 digits.
Thanks.
