RE: st: RE: RE: Displaying values less than one with a zero in front of the comma
In general a macro is a character string.
It could contain "2.78128" or "Fred Wolfe",
I guess you want to able to say something
. set localformat %7.2f
with also a stipulation that that be ignored
whenever the content is not numeric.
Is that right?
My guess is that StataCorp could
do that fairly easily. I just don't
think it would be particularly useful.
