Hi,

I have created an observation variable X (e.g. gen X=_n) for a large data set. How can I create a new variable that is unique for successive observations of 10 variables (i.e. i want this variable to be equal to 1 in obs 1-10, 2 in 11-20, and so forth)? There are way too many obervations to write a simple -replace- command.

Thank you!

KJ
