I would recommend using mathematical software like Mathematica for that one.
In Mathematica you can use the function FactorInteger[your number] to get a list of the integer factors of your number.
I have no idea how or even if Stata could do such a thing.

Hi, I have a variable which is always the product of two or more prime numbers. Is there a relatively easy way to find its constituent prime factors?

Thanks.
