Hello everyone,

I am running STATA 8.  I am not sure what this
procedure is called, but this is what I am trying to
do:

For an example, I have 3 questions asking respondents
to rate how much they like various fruits (Orange,
Apple, Pear) on a scale of low med high.  So...I have
a data table similar to the following:


                Low        Medium       High
Q1. Orange


                Low        Medium       High
Q2. Apple


                Low        Medium       High
Q3. Pear


Now I would like to combine these 3 questions into a
new variable called Fruit that would look similar to:


Fruit         Low           Medium     High
     Orange
     Apple
     Pear

Is this possible or does it make sense?

Thanks,
Buddy
