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...
I am not totally sure I understand your problem with drawnorm, but pgs. 8-10 of this handout show how corr2data can be used to create simulated data sets:
