st: newbie question on replacing variables in do file
When I run a series of commands to generate new variables in a do file and
realize I made a mistake on one of them, I would like to fix the mistake,
highlight the section of commands, and run the selection. When I do this,
Stata says the generated variables already exist. Sooooo, I need to drop
each variable I created in the series of commands, and then re-run them. I
assume this is a way Stata has to prevent accidently replacing a variable.
QUESTION: How can I have the gen and egen commands replace the variables I
want it to replace rathr than having to first drop them???
