First you have to decide what variable will be
the `key' to perform the merge, say it is var1. 
Suppose you master data is 1.dta and your using
data is 2.dta. Sort the using dataset on var1 and
save. Then sort the master dataset and type 
type

.merge var1 using 2.dta

Note that I am assuming that both datasets are in the current directory.

I would like to merge all of the variables of one data set with the variables 
of another dataset. The dataset which requires merging contains village level 
variables and the other is a household level dataset. 
I am unsure of how to do this and how to sort the variables of each dataset.
