Dear all,
I am in the process of transfering a file from SAS to Stata. I encountered a
problem.
In Sas, command "retain" can create a large quantity of variables and set
them all equal to zero at the same time.
If it is only a couple of variables, I can easily do it in Stata:

gen x=0;
gen y=0;

however, I have  almost a hundred of them.
Is there a similiar command in Stata that does that?

Thank you in advance.

Sincerely,
Guanghui Li
