Dear Statlisters,

I would like to match the values of one variable to the values of another variable and then create a third variable. Here is the basic setup:

ID MomID Height MomHeight
1 . 5 .
2 1 6 5
3 . 6 .
4 1 5.5 5 ...

MomHeight is the variable I want to create. It seems straightforward, but I just can't come up with the right code.

Thank you for any pointers.

Greg
