Dear all,

I too am relatively new at STATA, trying to find my way around the differences in the syntax language from SPSS.

Anyway, I was wondering if there was a way in STATA syntax to search a string variable for keywords and create an indicator variable (dummy) where 1=keyword found and 0=keyword not found?

Thanks in advance,

Jason Payne
