Hello,
use the results saved after -summarize, detail-

summarize varname, detail
drop if varname<r(p1) | varname>r(p99)


If you have many variables, use -tokenize-

tokenize "varname1 varname2 varname3 ..."
while "`1'"!="" {
		qui summarize `1', detail
		drop if `1'<r(p1) | `1'>r(p99)
		macro shift
		}

Hope this helps,
Antoine.

I want to cut off extraordinarily large and small values from variables
used in regression analysis. What is the easiest way to drop the largest and smallest 1% of observations
from variables in STATA-7?
Thanks in advance.
