Hi, 

I'm trying to run simulation exercises where I have to generate variables. 
The only way I know of doing it is by doing -drawnorm- and then replacing 
the values one by one - very inefficient. 

I also tried -svmat- but if I want to have more than 800 observations I 
have problems cos I can't generate a matrix with more than 800 rows. 

THere must be some simpler ways... 

Thanks, 

Tim
