Hi Nick


. reshape wide var, i(id) j(time)

but don't ask me why right now... and thankyou anyway.

there might be smarter solutions, but why don't you just separate the data
into different files, e.g.
use data
drop if time==1
save datatime1

use data
drop if time==2
rename variables ...
sava datatime2

and then merge it using your id variable... (see -help merge- for this).

I would like to reshape some data. Now it looks something like this:

id    time    var
1     1       x
2     1       y
1     2       z
2     2       w

I would like to change it to

id    var_t1    var_t2
1     x         z
2     y         w
