Hi,
 
I am trying to define value labels for a variable called 'sex'.
 
. label define lab_sex 1 male 2 female
. label values sex lab_sex
 
However, now I want to list a different variable according to the value label like this:
 
.list var2 if sex=="male"
 
but that gives me an error message, but:
 
.list var2 if sex==1
 
works. What have I done wrong?
 
 
Thanks,
 
Raoul
