Roger Newson wrote the package -sencode- to do this. Type -ssc describe sencode- to see if this is what you want and install it. You may need to decode the currently encoded variable first if you don't have a string version in the dataset.

Hi all,

I have a variable with (many) value labels, say

12-joe
23-mike
12-joe
45-helen
24-tom
...

I would like to create a new variable with consecutive values assigned to the old labels, e.g.

1-joe
2-mike
1-joe
3-helen
4-tom
...

It is important that the sequence of names is preserved.

Thanks a lot,
Serguei Kaniovski
