i have currently got a variable which can take the values 1 or 0. i want to
create a new variable which takes the values of the old one but which will
be equal to 0 once the number of 0 values in the old variable exceeds 200.

the code i have used is

generate y = progid
recode y = 0 if ( _(progid==0)>200)

is that correct?

the reason is that i am doing a survival study where i want to recode the
observations as censored once 200 failures have occurred.
