Hi,
I'm sorry to trouble you over this but I have tried several options
without success.The question:
How to join several dummies (dum1-dum5) into one variable giving
it values from 1-5 (according to dummies).
Thank you.
Gunche
Do you mean something like

gen x = dum1 + 2 * dum2 + 3 * dum3 + 4 * dum4 + 5 * dum5

If you have to do this a lot I suppose you could write some sort of ado file for it.
