Dear Statalist,

Does anyone know if there is a similar syntax to `x' for string variables? 

I have a string variable which might have contents like:
1, 2, 3, 4

I want to replace this string, under certain conditions, with something
like:
1, 2, 3, 4, 5

i.e. I want to keep the string and append ", 5", for example, to the end.

What I have written is this, but I realized the `myvar' notation only makes
sense when myvar is numeric.

replace match="`match', `y'" if ... Where y is numeric.

Again, ideas?  Thanks so much.
Terra
