st: assignment by indexing
Since I'm a stata-rooky this question probably is very basic. I'm looking
for a way to copy the contents of a specific variable out of the list "x1 x2
x3 x4 x5" to a new variable, newvar, say. However, which variable to copy
depends on the value of another variable, index, say. So I would need
generate newvar = x(index).
How can I realize this in Stata? I looked through the P programming and the
U user manual, but got stuck. Ben Pelzer.
