Thanks to Kit Baum, an update of -checkfor2- is available on the SSC archive.

-checkfor2- is a module to check for availability of variables in a (big) data
set. This is useful when one has comparable datasets but does not know which
variable is in which dataset. A program looping accross datasets will crash if
there is such a case. checkfor2 will loop across datasets and store available
variables in a local macro (using Nick Cox's isvar). Options could be specified
to deal with the number of missings in the available variables, along with
putting outputs in a concise table. The user could also specify the type of
missing value (mostly for string variables). Finally, a new option allows the
user to create a new variable recording the number of missings.


checkfor2 is now authored by Jean-Benoit Hardouin and me.

To install, type:

ssc install checkfor2, replace
