Dear STATAlistservers

I am trying to transform data in variables. What is the equivalent STATA syntax for this SPSS command

if (var1=2) var2=1.
Incidentally, a good source for Stata novices is the UCLA Stata Starter Kit:

An excellent book to buy is Hamilton's Statistics with Stata, updated for version 8:

To see how a lifelong SPSS user (me) has gradually picked up a few things in Stata, see my Grad Stats I web page at

http://www.nd.edu/~rwilliam/xsoc592/index.html

and look for links with the word "Stata" in them. Good luck. RW
