st: calling variables |

Dear statalist,

I’ve got data that is coded as follows:

var_1_yymm , var_2_yymm and so on.

If I would like to call the variables var_1 between January 2000 and February2001 I though I could use

var_1_0001-var_1_0102

Unfortunately, this is not calling the expected vars but those vars located in the dataset between var_1_0001 and var_1_0102.

How can I address the desired vars?

N.B. I’ll call the vars within a loop that shifts the time period forwards and backwards. Hence, I cannot call the vars individually.

All comments are welcomed.

Many thanks in advance.

Hans
