This code

replace Y = 0 if "`T'" == "" & id == `i' & Month == `m'
replace Y = 1 if "`T'" == "CAB" & id == `i' & Month == `m'
replace Y = 2 if "`T'" == "OXY" & id == `i' & Month == `m'
replace Y = 3 if "`T'" == "OTH" & id == `i' & Month == `m'
replace Y = 4 if "`T'" == "CAB OXY" & id == `i' & Month == `m'
replace Y = 5 if "`T'" == "CAB OTH" & id == `i' & Month == `m'
replace Y = 6 if "`T'" == "OTH OXY" & id == `i' & Month == `m'
replace Y = 7 if "`T'" == "CAB OTH OXY" & id == `i' & Month == `m'

would be better as

if "`T'" == "" replace Y = 0  if id == `i' & Month == `m'
else if if "`T'" == "CAB" replace Y = 1 if id == `i' & Month == `m'
...
else if "`T'" == "CAB OTH OXY" replace Y = 7 if id == `i' & Month ==
`m'
