st: recast question
I have another simple question. I've checked all that
STATA manuals, and have read up on recast, but I am
still having problems. When I imported my data, STATA
defaulted a string variable to str80 - so it cut off
some of my responses. I wanted to change the storage
type to str200. I've used this command:
. recast str100 q5mtype
q5mtype: str100 invalid
While Stata will allow me to decrease the size (i.e. I
could type: . recast str79 q5mtype, and it will accept
me, but it will not allow me to increase the str size.
