Hi (stata8, win2k)
I have 3 variables p1 p2 p3. I need to generate a new variable pred

"pred" ==
1 if p1 is the largest of the 3,
2 if p2 is the largest
and 3 if p3 is the largest
[...]
This is not particularly difficult, but the problem, as stated is ambiguous. What do you want to happen if the maximal value occurs in more than one of the variables?
