Dear All,

I am sure this is very silly question, but I have a
variable that I want to "keep if==" it has only some
specific, non-continuos, values (namely, it is an
index variable that indentifies firms, and I want to
keep sepecific firms, let say 1, 7, 325, etc...). How
do I write the command line? I have been trying for
almost two hours, with different combinations and
nothing works. I am using STAT version 8.
try something like

keep if inlist(firm, 1, 7, 325)

See -help inlist- for more details.
