I need help with some Stata command that I haven’t been able to find…

I have a panel data like the following

 

Men                 Fund                Date                             Dummy

1                      A                     20040630                     0

1                      A                     20040730                     0

1                      A                     20040830                     1

1                      B                     20040830                     1

1                      B                     20040930                     0

2                      C                     20040630                     1

2                      D                     20040630                     1

2                      D                     20040730                     0

3                      C                     20040630                     0                     

3                      C                     20040730                     0

3                      C                     20040830                     0

3                      C                     20040930                     1

3                      D                     20040930                     1

 

As you can see, I have multiple observations per person at a single date, and I need a command that helps me create a Dummy, as shown in the example above. Because I have to consider only one move per month (no matter the fund) , for example I have to consider for Men=1 only 4 observations (notwithstanding there are 5 observations for Men = 1).
