dear listers,

stata 8.2. winxp.

trying to recode string variables (counts) consisting of 'high', 'low', 'medium', 'vhigh', etc to numerical values e.g. high = 1, low=2. look up manuals - recode for numerical only, destring replace/generate did not work. any suggestions or work around? i started with something like gen counts2=. but then i am stuck as to what to do next. would appreciate help.

bw
