if you have a variable x, and want another variable y=sum(x), then Stata 7's

egen y=sum(x)

will do it.

There is a command in the spss program in which you can generate a new 
variable that is the cumulative summatory of the original variable (namely 
csum). I would like to know if there is a similar command or funcion in
Stata, 
or if there is any other way I could create that new variable. 
Thank you.
