Nick Cox, you are the BEST EVER!!!! Many many thanks.

For what I now think you want, the matrices are at best a means to an end and at worst a complete distraction. You can go from dataset to dataset. Here is a silly example: ----------------- u auto, clear foreach v of var turn trunk foreign { bysort rep78 `v' : gen f_`v'_ = _N separate f_`v'_, by(`v') foreach w of var `r(varlist)' { bysort rep78 (`w') : replace `w' = `w'[1] replace `w' = 0 if mi(`w') } local vars "`vars' `r(varlist)'" } keep rep78 `vars' bysort rep78: keep if _n == 1 -------------------- here is a more general script ----------------------- u <dataset>, clear foreach v of var <column variables> { bysort <rowvar> `v' : gen f_`v'_ = _N separate f_`v'_, by(`v') foreach w of var `r(varlist)' { bysort <rowvar> (`w') : replace `w' = `w'[1] replace `w' = 0 if mi(`w') } local vars "`vars' `r(varlist)'" } keep <rowvar> `vars' bysort <rowvar>: keep if _n == 1 ------------------------ There's probably a quicker way, but I hope that helps.
