Dear Stata users,

 I am using a simple table command

table state, c(n var1 n var2 n var3) row

Now I want to use the result of this table for generating new variables.

 Say, gen newvar = N(var1)/N(var3). One way is using the "replace" option
with the table command. But that cuses the data in memory to lose. And I
will have  to insheet the data set again. With out that option is there a
way out?

Thanks in advance!!!

Rijo M John.
