st: storage type problem
I ran into the following small problem that, I think, has to do with storage
types, but I'm not sure how to solve it...
Suppose we want to calculate the product of -.1796042 and 4.752947, so we
and we get
However, if we have variable X= -.1796042 and variable Y=4.752947, and we
gen Z=X*Y, Stata will generate Z=. even though Z should be -.00028563.
I know this has to do with storage types, so i tried
gen double Z=X*Y, but this still produces a missing variable...
thanks a lot!
