Nick Winter has provided some -reshape- code.
My posting was an indirect way of saying that
I couldn't see an easy way of doing this
with this number of variables and official Stata's
existing commands. Nor will the user-written
commands I am aware of help much.
I agree with the point I take to be tacit,
namely, that it would be desirable to be
able to do this in Stata without restructuring.
