Hello there,

As a new user to Stata as well I've used the following to merge data 

merge X1 using "C:\Filename", 
tab _merge
assert _merge~=3
then sort the data by X1

I hope this helps.

I have one question about merging data..I am wondering if someone out there 
could help me with it.

Let's say data sets, A and B.. A includes {X1,X2,X3,X4} and B 
includes{X1,X2,X5}..Using X1 and X2, we could uniquely identify the 
individuals in the data...Moreover,the sample size of B is bigger that of 
A..I only want X5 of individuals in B who are also in A...How could I do 

Thanks a lot..
