Thank you Steven W. Bradley I was able to do what was needed but now I have a new opportunity.
Could someone please help me understand why it is important to have multiple observations at different rates with the same id when you reshape wide. The error below was generated when I tried to reshape.

note: j = 0/10 1-2/10 1/10 10/10 2-3/10 2/10 3-4/10 3-5/10 3-6/10 3-7/10 3/10

4-10/10 4-5/10 4-6/10 4-8/10 4/10 5-6/10 5-7/10 5/10 6-10/10 6-7/10 6/10 7-1
0/10 7-8/10 7-9/10 7/10 8-10/10 8-9/10 8/10 9/10 ? MIN PAIN MORE PAIN PAIN BE

rate not unique within id;
there are multiple observations at the same rate within id.
Type "reshape error" for a listing of the problem observations.
