Dear all,

I am trying to get the maximum of all past or present values, i.e.

x[i] = max x[j, j<=i]

I tried the following commands:

bysort id (yr): egen x1 = max(l0.x&l1.x&l3.x), which returns 1 instead of the max,
and
bysort id (yr): egen x1 = max(l(0/3).x), which produces an error.

Any idea on how to do this correctly?

Many thanks,

Thomas
