RE: st: Re: Retrieving a master dataset after merging
Thanks for your comments, Michael. I dropped _merge, however, so it seems I
can't retrieve the dataset. I probably just have to redo the changes I did
to dataset A. Thanks.

Well, I don't think you should ever save the new merged dataset on top of
the master (i.e., don't use -save, replace-). If you follow this advice
then you could just -use master-. Assuming you didn't follow this advice,
you can retrieve the master dataset (if you didn't specify -update- as an
option). Just type:
keep if _merge==1 | _merge==3
if the using dataset contains some variables not in the master dataset, you
then drop those:
drop usingvar1 usingvar2 usingvar3...

Subject: st: Retrieving a master dataset after merging
After doing a -merge-, can one retrieve the master dataset? If yes, how
can it be done? Thank you.
