Re my program that creates separate variables for each year: easily changed to what you want (I think)

webuse grunfeld,clear
gen allquartile = .
qui forv i=1935/1954 {
egen quartile`i' = cut(mvalue) if year==`i', group(4)
replace allquartile=quartile`i'+1 if quartile`i' < .
}
su allquartile

This will create a single variable for which each firm is classified in the quartile in which it falls each year (which may differ over years).
