No, you don't. You need to send your GAUSSophile friend a text file with three columns and 326 rows. Generate the stuff you want using Stata variables and use -outfile- to generate a text file of the sort that GAUSS will read. The same is true for interchanging data with any matrix language (e.g. MATLAB).

I'm not sure why a GAUSS user would want _you_ to generate a 326 x 3 matrix with only three distinct values (as that could be done in one line of GAUSS code, just as Nick Cox indicated it could be done in Stata)...

The TRUTH.... I need to send this matrix to someone who is using GAUSS....
that is why I wanted to just generate this matrix and send it across. This
matrix will then be used for simulations.
