(not tested; shorter solutions may exist) gen max = max(c1,c2) gen min = min(c1,c2) bysort max min (x) : assert _N == 2 by max min: replace x = x[1] if missing(x) For example: 2-1 and 1-2 both have maximum 2 and minimum 1. We sort so that ties on -min- and -max- are together, and check that they do indeed occur in pairs. Within each pair, we sort on -x-, so that missings go to the end. Then we copy downwards within each pair. Nick n.j.cox@durham.ac.uk Neumayer,E > > thanks. I can see how this creates a nice rectangular > dataset.
