still "mon ambiguous abbreviation" error
Quoting Felipe Salazar <felipe.salazar@uai.cl>:

You are typing 'k' instead of `k' which is slightly different. Try
copying directly the code into your do-file (at least the lines with the
`k' )

-- Felipe

Thank you for the tip, but it's stating that 'k' is an invalid name,
although
it is defined.  If you have any more ideas I would love to see them.

Thank you

If I understand correctly, you have 204 variables named mon1 mon2 mon3
... mon204. I would type:

local k=1
while `k'<=204 {
   keep if mon`k'=="3"
   local ++k
}

I'm having one problem with a command in STATA 8.0. I have variables
in which
I want to keep only one case in all of them, but there's too many
(204)to do
one by one.

i.e.
keep if mon*=="3"
keep if mon[i]=="3"

But I get an "mon ambiguous abbreviation" error. Please help!!!

Thanks
Dexter E. Jason
