. search quantile

Nuno Soares

I'm looking for help with a problem with stata and deciles.
I want to insert a new variable (NewVar) which is based on another variable
(X) deciles/quartiles.
Here goes an example of my problem:
Ex. for the quartiles case (just for the sake of exposition, since I need
deciles...), I would like to be able to generate the NewVar variable based on the quantiles of X's observations:

X NewVar
1 1
6 2
2 1
4 2
3 1
5 2
12 4
9 3
8 3
10 4
11 4
7 3

Is there a function or a way of doing this automatically? I've searched the help files but found no solution to this problem...
