Hi,

I am trying to match 2 panel data sets, but I want to use more than 1 variables as matching ctireria. i.e. I want to do something like that

merge name lastname year using x

However STATA 8 does not seem to be able to use more than 1 criteria. I will be very happy if you can help me!

Best,
Sarah
